Last week, over 100 ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) attended a celebration of their achievements at the Maybury Centre in Woking.

The students, who originate from over 30 different countries, were delighted to be awarded their University of Cambridge Examinations Certificates by The Mayor of Woking (Councillor Anne Murray).

The ESOL Skills for Life Courses are for adult learners (16plus) whose first language is not English and who are living and trying to settle in England.

A special annual award “ESOL Learner of The Year” was presented to Angel Changa from Brazil and Sanaz Eghtesadinia from Iran for their commitment to learning.

Sanaz commented “My course at Woking College changed my life, it has given me back my smile.”

Senior Manager at Woking College Karen Foan, and Head of Essential Skills Rachel Simpson, congratulated all the students. The ceremony was followed by refreshments where students contributed foods from their diverse backgrounds.

For students wishing to enrol on new ESOL courses enrolment dates are Wednesday 14th September 2016 and Thursday 15th September at 9.15 am and 6.00pm at Woking College.
