ESOL classes are completely free! You need to be an Initial Accommodation resident or a service user at Praxis Community Projects. You can email us if you have questions.
Evening classes operate a sliding scale fee policy – you choose what you can afford.
Evening courses run from October to April, in two terms with breaks for school holidays. Each course will have 20 – 24 weekly sessions.
Depending on your financial situation each 2-hour class will cost you:
£10 – Student (total course cost £200 – £240)
£15 – Standard (total course cost £300 – £360)
£20 – Supporter (total course cost £400 – £480)
All profits from these fees go towards running our free English classes for refugees and migrants – so the more you pay, the more people we can support and teach!
There will also be ONE place in each group reserved for a person who can only afford £5 per class, they will be asked to do around 30 mins-1 hour per week volunteering for Babel’s (eg. arriving early to help the teacher set up, photocopying worksheets, promoting us on social media). This place cannot be booked via the website/booking app, please email us.
