Learners also had fun with the chop stick challenge. They found it quite difficult but it provided lots of laughs and encouragement provided by other learners 🥠 #EqualityandDiversity ... See MoreSee Less
On Friday 17th January 2020 - the Learn to Speak More English course started and the learners looked at some New Year’s Resolutions connected to their wellbeing.
They used modal verbs to describe what they ‘will, must or should’ do in 2020. They learnt different names for sporting activities and discussed what they ought to do more, or less, of to improve their wellbeing. They talked about food, exercise, family, leisure and, of course, learning English!
The course runs every Friday 10.00-13.00 for 11 weeks in our Sutton Campus! ... See MoreSee Less

Today is ‘Blue Monday’ 🔵
The theory goes that this is the time of year when we’re all cold, short of money and guilty that any New Year’s resolutions to get fit, drink more water etc. The concept was originally coined in 2004. The formula uses many factors including weather conditions, debt level, time since Christmas, time since failing our new year’s resolutions, low motivational levels and feeling of a need to take action.
Some simple ideas to banish Blue Monday:
🔹Think positively – reflect on all the things you do well, your strengths, things people value in you
🔹Go to a green space that will boost your mood
🔹Set aside some ‘me time’
🔹Exercise – be active e.g. walk, jog, go for a bike ride, swim
🔹Take time to talk to your family, friends, work colleagues.
We hope that you have a great day! 😄 ... See MoreSee Less
