English for speakers of other languages

Community Learning and Development Service (CLDS) with Borders College provide English classes for adults living in the Scottish Borders. Most classes are delivered online and there are some face to face classes.

Register to study English

You can study at a range of levels, from beginners through to certificate classes.

Once you have registered, you will work with a trained tutor to decide which level of class is best for you. This is usually done on an individual basis by phone or online and at times group face to face assessments are carried out.

You will receive an email explaining when your chosen class is expected to start. You may have to wait for a suitable class to start and if this is the case you will be told this and invited to the next session of classes.
