ESOL for Citizenship and Settlement

This course is for individuals applying for British Citizenship and Settlement Visa (ILR/Indefinite Leave to Remain). This English course will have speaking and listening modules integrated with ‘Life in the UK’ materials. There will be no books and computers involved, and you will not be tested on your reading and writing skills.

The course is specifically taught with citizenship materials and is aimed at people whose English levels are low. The certificate you will receive after completing your course is an ESOL ‘Skills for Life’ qualification in speaking and listening at Entry Level, which is exactly what the Home Office requires.

Initial Assessment:
To determine your current entry level you will need to visit our office and take an initial assessment for free with one of our highly qualified English Language tutors. The result of this assessment will clarify whether you will be permitted to join the course.


ESOL and Life in the UK Test

As part of your application for Naturalisation or Settlement Visa, you are required to:

  • pass the Life in the UK test; and
  • have a speaking and listening qualification in English at B1 CEFR or higher, or an equivalent application.

The Life in the UK test is a computer-based, multiple choice test. The test is based on the official handbook “Life in the UK: a Guide for New Residents”. You can test yourself for free at iam (Immigration and Migration) website.

Note that if you already have an English language qualification at B1 or above, you will not be required to take another examination.


Course Objectives:
