S is a 33-year-old woman from Pakistan, who arrived in the UK in 2012 and she has two children. She went to school in Pakistan but and cannot read nor write in English language but able to speak a bit English.

S said: “ESOL for Employability course helped me a little to improve my communication with people. I started to look for a job, but nobody employed me because of my English. I started doing my ESOL course at Ameina Centre.  The ESOL course is very important to me because in the future I want to do teaching in a school/nursery, so ESOL will help me to improve my spelling, grammar, speaking skills, to get better job and to be independent.”

S is now able to follow and participate in simple conversations, she can read and write her own personal information and can read simple words and text. S has constructed a CV during the course and now she’s seeking for a volunteer position in locality.
