The Wayland Library has sponsored an ESOL Program (English for Speakers of Other Languages) for seventeen years. This program has trained well over two hundred tutors. We still have a never-ending waiting list of learners who need our help.


  • Fifteen hours of intensive work
  • Part One makes the tutor aware of some of the problems faced by the student in learning English;
  • Part Two consists of specific skills and techniques for teaching.
