There was much music and joy at the Centre recently when we celebrated our amazing ESOL students who have achieved so much despite huge challenges to overcome during the pandemic.
Our learners had to quickly learn how to work virtually when the pandemic started, many of our students having not accessed digital devices before. And yet, despite these challenges, on top of language barriers, they passed their exams with flying colours.
The students were joined by the Centre’s community choir teacher, Louise Lloyd soprano, who has been teaching English through song – a technique that builds confidence and group cohesion. They were presented with awards by Councillor Sirajul Islam, Deputy Mayor of Tower Hamlets.
