Since I have started on the course my maths has improved a lot. On some of my tests I have even scored 100%. My teacher has been very helpful and he does everything he can to help us understand and learn in class. I am very grateful to him for all the help.

Lewisham Southwark College prepared me well for university in many ways. It gave me confidence in vital skills like writing, which are really important on a degree course, and sparked my creativity.



She says that the Lewisham College ESOL department has given her social skills as well as language skills and has taught her how to interact with a wide variety of cultures – essential skills for her current job working in a large, busy London Hotel.
