When 31-year-old Maria Radu moved to the UK from Romania three years ago she was unable to speak English – but that has all changed after she signed up for an ESOL course at the college. 

Maria said: “Last year I felt low and didn’t have any confidence as I couldn’t speak English, but now I’m able to read, write and speak confidently.  

“I’ve learnt a lot of vocabulary as well as knowledge of daily life in England, and I also had the chance to do voluntary work which gave me experience of working with others as part of a team.   

“The tutor encouraged me to learn and acquire new knowledge every day and, now that I’m able to speak to everyone, I’m so much happier and confident and can share what I learnt with others!”
