Two excellent blogs/podcasts about ESOL for people seeking sanctuary
EAP for Social Justice: Praxis in Action have published two inspirational sister blogs / podcasts – Leicester University of Sanctuary staff involved in the English Language Teaching Unit, Pascale and Julie talk about their approach to working with refugees at Leicester. This programme includes free expert tuition in quality university provision ( via Zoom during the pandemic) for people seeking sanctuary in conjunction with Leicester City of Sanctuary.
