Free English Lessons
7:30pm - 9pm
OTGE FREE ENGLISH COURSE with qualified English teachers to help you
This is a chance for people from countries (not the UK) to meet with others in the same position as them, to learn more English: improving pronunciation, gaining confidence speaking, learning new grammar and vocabulary. It is a relaxed, informal classroom setting with qualified teachers. This friendly group enables people to connect with others, find friends and have fun while getting better at English.
It is called Open to God English (OTGE) because it is run by people from St Saviour's Church and we use stories from the Bible as part of the lesson. We also have a theme, worksheets, games, and learn pronunciation through the Colour Vowel Chart. Individual help is given to students who need it during the lesson and we encourage people to ask questions.
If you are interested in joining the class, just come along on the night and try it for yourself. Each lesson you will learn new things. There is a break for a hot drink and cake/biscuits for 15 minutes in the middle, so you can get to know the other students.
Once a term we have a social - eating a meal together or visiting somewhere interesting in Bath.

Whatever your level - beginner or advanced, you are welcome to come along and start at any point in the course. We have a different theme each week - in the coming weeks we are doing: Friends and Family, Gardens and Plants, Emergencies, Animals and Birds. Further lessons are planned from 21st Feb to 21st March and through the summer term too.
The lessons are held in the upstairs classroom on the first floor at St Saviour's Church (in the door and up the stairs to the left) There is a lift for disabled access.
If you can't come every week - that's OK - come when you can. These lessons have helped many students become more fluent and confident in English and we can help you too.
Everyone is welcome: whatever faith you have or if you have no faith. There is an extra half hour from 9.00 to 9.30 (Open to God Extra) where we talk together about the Bible passage and discuss spirituality and different religions. This is optional, so students do not need to stay for this if they do not want to.
We look forward to meeting you :)
