Project BME provide numerous services, from advice and advocacy and mentoring to training and capacity-building for other organisations, across Lancashire. Their Creative English class is run at the Darwen Aldridge Community Academy in Blackburn.
Programme leader Zed Ali told us about some of those involved in the class:
Karim said Creative English classes would allow them to integrate and make new friends and allow them to have conversations with their children in English and eventually lead to enhancing their speaking skills to seek employment.
A group of 5 women told me that they had really enjoyed themselves and felt that they will be able to make some positive changes. They said it was really a fun way of increasing their ability to speak English.
Maria said she liked the ‘doctor and nurses’ roleplay the best as it made her laugh out loud.
