English My Way

Posted on the 14th September 2018

English My Way is a community-based English language project, supporting adults with no or low levels of English language skills.

Since 2014, Good Things Foundation has supported over 20,000 people to better integrate into their local communities by taking their first steps into learning English. This has led to real and positive change for individuals and communities – participants have reported feeling less isolated, using their new-found skills to talk to neighbours, doctors and their children’s teachers, while many have also moved on to employment or further learning.

Stories from the learners we’ve supported through English My Way show why ESOL for community integration is so important – such as that of Nageswary who has found work and feels more connected to her community thanks to the English language skills she’s gained through the programme.
