What is Talk English?
Talk English helps people learn English and get involved in the wider community.
We provide many different opportunities for people to learn English, access services and get more involved in the community in parts of Greater Manchester, Lancashire, West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, the West Midlands, Greater London, Derbyshire and Cambridgeshire.
People can get involved in the project in different ways. On our Talk English Courses, which are taught by volunteers, people can improve their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in English. There are regular Talk English Activities for people learning English so they can meet others, practise speaking English and do something fun and different.
We also train Talk English Friends to support learners one to one or in a small group on our courses or activities.
We also provide training for local businesses and services through Talk English Here to enable people learning English to more confidently in real-life situations.
The project is funded by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) until March 2018.
