ESOL Adult Ed


Since returning to Thanet I have been enthused by collaborating with Dr Sheila Macdonald, researcher and ESOL tutor.
Together we have begun to create a working practice which tackles issues and obstacles faced by repeat beginner ESOL learners from mainly a Roma background residing in Thanet.

Our collaboration has helped to identify many obstacles people hold to learning, from social issues, health issues, lack of primary language reading and writing to those with specific learning difficulties.
Our mission has been to start to help eliminate people’s fears and concerns by introducing alternate ways of engaging their learning.
