English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

We offer free English lessons in and around Merton for people who are not able to get to formal college classes, because of cost, family situation or disability and who may become isolated at home.

Learners can have lessons in their own homes or in small, informal classes. Our friendly volunteer tutors help learners with everyday English to give them confidence and enable them to help themselves and their families understand and participate in local and national life in the UK. Learning English is the key.

Every year, we teach around 100 adults in classes or at home. Our learners come from a wide range of countries, from Asia and Africa to South America and Europe

Matrix Accreditation

In June 2022, our charity successfully and proudly gained Matrix Accreditation for delivering high quality information and guidance to our learners. The independent assessor reviewed many of our processes and procedures and interviewed 2 partner organisations, 12 staff and volunteers and 17 MHTS learners.

Staff, volunteers and partners said:

“Working here is inspirational and very learner-focused.”

Partners describe MHTS service as “very consistent and responsive”.

Learners highlighted the wider outcomes of our work:

“I feel so much more confident speaking to native Britons.”

“I am now able to support my son with his homework.”

We are a small but mighty charity, who will continue to strive for the best outcomes for our learners.
