ESOL student Veronika Velicko

18 Apr 2018

After moving to the UK from Latvia Veronica Velicko enrolled for an ESOL course to give her a qualification that would benefit her in the future.

Veronika, aged 37, said: “I’d lived here for a number of years before I came to college but I’m really glad I did as my grammar and vocabulary have improved a lot.

“I’ve learnt the correct way to write letters or submit forms and I’m more confident when making phone calls too.

“After completing the ESOL course I progressed to GCSE English last year and achieved a grade 5 in the exam – I couldn’t believe it when I got the results and felt very proud of myself!”

After completing her English qualifications Veronika has now enrolled for a  Level 2 certificate in Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools.
