Welcome to Talk English
Barnet and Southgate, London

Barnet and Southgate College works with many different organisations to provide courses and activities that help people learn English, access services and get involved in the community.

Learn English with us

If you need to learn English, you can come to one of our Talk English Courses.  On a Talk English Course, you will improve your speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in English.  All of our courses are for beginners.

You can also practise speaking English, meet other people and learn other things at one of our Talk English Activities.


Volunteer with us

  •  Volunteer teachers will receive 15 hours free training (3 hours a week for 5 weeks) and teach a class (with another volunteer) in a local school or community centre. Classes will be for 2 hours, for 12 weeks, and your students will be at beginner level. You will have both materials and ongoing support from teacher trainers. This is a great opportunity to develop new skills or extend your existing experience while at the same time meeting new people and helping your community.
  • Volunteer friends will receive 7.5 hours free training (2.5 hours for 3 weeks) and will run activities with ESOL learners at a range of levels, for example, ESOL and football, ESOL and Stay and Play, ESOL and crafts, or alternatively run a conversation class over a number of weeks. This is a really great opportunity to share your skills and interests and at the same time learn something fun and new.

Training courses start w/c 11th September and teaching starts w/c 18th September. There will be further training and course dates in October and January (TBC) so please get in touch if you’re not sure about dates.
