English & Maths for Adults


At first glance, English can seem like a confusing and complicated language. Do you use there, their or they're; is it your, you're or yore; and what's the difference between its and it's; and that's before we even get to the homophones - those words that are spelt (or spelled) differently but pronounced the same - like stare/stair, aisle/isle, and suite/sweet.

Yes, the English language can be complicated, but here at Lambeth College, we teach it simply.

Your course will be tailored to you and your progress will be monitored with an Individual learning plan, you will also receive a certificate of achievement at the end of the course.
