English My Way is a community-based English language project, developed by Good Things Foundation in partnership with the BBC and the British Council, to support adults with no or low levels of English language skills.
The project provides pre-entry level ESOL skills through a structured 24-week blended learning programme, improving English language skills to help people better integrate with their local communities. Funded by DCLG, this fresh approach to English language learning combines tutor-led sessions, rich multimedia online learning and volunteer-supported ‘Learning Circles’,
English My Way aims to reach people with the lowest levels of English language skills (especially women), working in areas of England with high demand for English language support.
During the first two years of the programme:
Over 9,172 learners benefited from ESOL learning
It reached people in 38 UK areas of the highest language need
70% of learners progressed to an Entry Level 1 ESOL course
The English My Way website was developed as the online home of the ESOL learning programme, offering flexible tutor resources and session plans available completely free.
