Babel’s are crowdfunding, help us grow!

Our programme of paid evening classes raises approximately 60% of the money we need to run Babel’s. In order to keep our English classes completely free for our refugee and migrant students, we need to fundraise in other ways as well.

There’s a huge demand for free English lessons in London and we are hoping to do our bit by expanding our ESOL provision in September.

We’ve just launched a new crowdfunding campaign, which you can check out here:


You can also check out our Donate page for other options including setting up a monthly donation!


Welcome to new friends and supporters!

Apparently some of our comrades are famous now?

Thanks for checking out our website! We don’t currently have any language classes running, except our free ESOL groups. Other classes will start again in September – we’re hoping to run Arabic, Bengali and Latin American Spanish again; bring back either Yiddish or Hebrew; and start teaching some new ones (Kurdish? Swahili? Let us know what you want to learn!)

We’re also putting together plans for some workshops, film screenings and social events in May, June & July. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more info as it happens.

If you’d like to support our work and help us keep running free, regular, accessible and fun English classes for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants, you can also chuck a few quid in the virtual cashbox here.

With love, solidarity, thanks & beetroots,
