Maria came to the UK three years ago for work with her partner and young son. Maria has a good level of English and Peter looked after their child while she worked. Although he speaks several languages, Peter’s level of English was below the A1 standard on the Common European Framework. They heard from colleagues that Language Learners had helped to improve the English skills of their families and so they approached us to put together some classes for Peter. After a little more than a year, he is able to communicate effectively with the staff at his son’s nursery and has received help from his tutor in term of writing an English CV and applying for work.
