The Enter English Course

Date: 01/09/2022 19:00 UK

A ten-hour online course designed for families hosting Ukrainian refugees and community or church groups helping refugees from all backgrounds learn English.


Interactive price: £25.00

Interactive: PC/Mac/tablet compatible. Work on our interactive platform. Good internet access required.


A short 10-hour course designed to show you how to help refugees in the UK learn English. 

Why this course?

You will learn some of the immediate needs of refugees when they first arrive, learn how to teach basic English, listen to experienced instructors and hear stories from refugees who are settled here about what made a difference for them.

You move step-by-step through short, interactive modules, with opportunities to message your tutor if you need help.  There are of practical suggestions for teaching, access to some of the best free material available, and you'll be able to share with others on four accompanying webinars.

Written and created with funding assistance from Western Power Distribution through Localgiving, this course is designed to assist you in helping refugees overcome isolation and communicate more effectively, so that they can become full and active members of their local communities.

You’ll leave with course resources and a 10-hour PDF certificate upon successful completion.

How this interactive course works

This course is ideal if you’ve got a good broadband connection and can work entirely online via a tablet/PC/Mac/mobile phone. You’ll study our language, and how we teach it, complete interactive exercises, and watch videos that will bring the teaching and learning experience to life. Click on the Course Content tab for more info. 

Eligibility 

Open to families hosting Ukrainian refugees and people assisting refugees/asylum seekers in community or church-based English language classes anywhere in the United Kingdom. 

You should be  hosting or working with refugees or asylum seekers and be able to complete two short surveys with them, based on how they find communicating in English. One survey is at the beginning of the course, the second later this year.

You will be 18 years old or over, a native English speaker, or a non-native English speaker with a good level of English.

Student Comments

This is a new course, but it's been reviewed by three experienced teachers, who work with refugees in the UK. Read their comments on the course below:

"This course is carefully prepared, clearly set out, easy to access and use, and there is a sense of being well supported.

Module one provides a very good general lead-in, which will reassure anyone who is new to the issue of working with refugees. I loved the videos from the refugees themselves.  They tell us real stories beyond the news headlines and sensational statistics, these are real lives and real people.

Module two introduces essential English with good videos and is delivered in a very reassuring style, with the main focus on keeping everything simple. Louisa’s video is really friendly and accessible. She speaks clearly and carefully without being patronising. I loved the miming activities and it was very easy to progress through the slides. This will really help anyone new to teaching.

Module three gets the trainee to grips with grammar. It’s a worthwhile, unpressured lead-in for those who have not regularly used grammar books to teach. Particularly useful is that some language mistakes that Ukrainian nationals could make are mentioned.

Module four brings the course to life. It was really interesting to hear about real experiences from a family hosting a Ukrainian refugee and also the videos from experienced teachers on what works well for them.

I can fully recommend the Enter English course. I think it’s useful for teachers, hosts, and all supporters of Ukrainians and foreign nationals."
Rose Edney

"The first module about refugee status etc. was very helpful as, though we've been through the process of supporting a brother and sister get leave to remain in the UK (because of persecution in their own country) and even had an asylum seeker live with us, this module brings us bang up to date with current legislation and terminology.

I find the videos very helpful and the questions help me keep up concentration."
Helen Watt

"I think the course will be excellent for people wanting to support refugees with learning English and I would be happy to recommend it."

Course Description

Our interactive courses are innovative and take a fresh approach to training to teach English. 

With shorter modules that you can take on a computer (notebook/laptop or PC/Mac) or on a tablet device (ipad/android/windows etc.), this course offers full flexibility for training on the go. After watching an initial welcome video, you can dive straight in to the course or pick and choose the order of the modules that you work through.

Works successfully with touch-screen pcs so you can rearrange the course size with minimal loss of resolution.

Access your personal tutor who will mark your work and the opportunity to share teaching ideas on the Global English forum, all via your own student area.

Built in HTML5, you can take this course from anywhere with a good internet connection.  You will also need to be able to access YouTube videos from where you are located. 

“What I like about this new layout is that it’s easier to go back to a section if you need to revise it, assisted by the fact that the information is more segmented, given in smaller bites and that when you hover your mouse over a page on the Dashboard page, it gives you a title.”
