The main aims of the English Classes are to enable ladies of all ages and abilities to learn to speak and listen to the English language. Some also want to improve their writing skills. We accommodate their needs and offer support workers to help the tutor because of the variations in the levels of learning. These sessions also help to tackle socially isolation and low self-esteem.
We are currently hosting the following English Classes:
City and Guilds English Qualification Entry Level 1 – 4 (for Women)
Delivered by Achieve Through Learnng (ATL) – This course runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays 9:30 – 11:30am
UMMEED Reading Group
Delivered by UMMEED. They are funded by South Yorkshire Community Foundation to run a English reading group on Mondays. They have a collection of adult ESOL books to practice reading and access to apps on a number of tablets (thanks to funding from Rotherfed)
Listen to Mrs Mharoof who has been coming to Tassibee for over 8 years, as she observes that Tassibee is a place where she offloads her stress, finds peace, renewed and refreshed spiritually. She attended Tassibee English class and since then she has learned how to write and speak English. Talking with other women who speak her only language gives her a sense of belonging and identity.
