Default Re: Let's Raise the Roof on Adult ESL classes!

The situation is exactly the same in the UK. I have given up on government funded courses. The focus appears not to be on the learners but on government targets such as a minumum number of learners or exam passes. Invariably a lot of learners simply want to integrate into society rather than worry about exam pressures. I am just beginning to set up my own business and am encouraging local organizations to pursue ESOL/ESL along a self-funded framework i.e charitable organizations provide the funding.
