Talk English - a whole community approach to learning English and integration
About the webinar
Funded by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), the Talk English project helps people to learn English, access services and get more involved in the community. Through the project, volunteers have been trained and supported to deliver English courses and activities in order to help people with the lowest levels of English build their confidence and learn English. In this webinar, the presenters will talk about what they have done, the outcomes of the project so far and how the project could be replicated by others with support from the Talk English website.
