Welcome to Talk English

Derby Adult Learning Service offers Talk English Courses and Activities in Derby to 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.  We offer courses in community centres and schools around Derby.

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

Derby Adult Learning Service train and support people to volunteer as ESOL teachers or Talk English Friends. We’re looking for enthusiastic, committed volunteers who want to make a real difference to people’s lives.   This is a great opportunity to gain experience  and develop your skills.  You’ll also get to meet people from all over the world, learn about other cultures and be part of a really exciting project!
