The course provides candidates with the opportunity to develop their English language skills, using detailed English language. Everyday life, work and study are the contexts within the course and therefore, these contexts will be fully explored and developed in the delivery of the course. Although the course must cover all three contexts, when considering the work and study contexts, greater emphasis could be placed on work or study in terms of course content, to address the current and future aims of the candidates. Within each context, themes and topics can be personalised to meet the needs of candidates.
ESOL for everyday life

The candidates develop the four skills of reading, writing, listening, and speaking in the familiar contexts of work and study. The broad context of study is intended to support candidates who need to develop their academic English skills so that they can apply them to other subjects or courses they may be undertaking or wish to undertake in the future. The broad context of work is intended to support candidates who need to develop their English language skills for work so that they can apply them in seeking work and in current or future workplaces.
