Borderlands (South West) Limited

We are a charity based in Bristol that exists to work with refugees, asylum seekers and other vulnerable migrants to help them from exclusion to belonging.

English Classes

The great majority of our members do not speak English as their first language, and many have not had the chance to study English before.

Being able to speak English helps our members to rebuild their lives and be part of their new communities. It also helps overcome the loneliness and isolation they often experience.

What level of English do we teach?

We focus on basic language and literacy skills for the members in greatest need of help. We keep the groups small so that it is easier to offer individual support to each learner.


We run classes on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays for Pre-Entry and Entry 1 students. We also have a poetry group for higher levels at 10:30am on Wednesday morning.

Our teaching spaces are newly refurbished and equipped, and we have wonderful volunteer teachers in the Education Team.
