On Speaking Terms

Creative English was featured as a case study in On Speaking Terms, a report by think-tank Demos on the state of provision of English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) in England and how it compares with other nations.

Our research identifies a number of advantages associated with English ability, which extend far beyond the labour market outcomes that often dictate the current, narrow ESOL policy remit. These range from so-called ‘soft’ outcomes such as independence, confidence and self-determination, to more tangible benefits such as better access to healthcare and education (and hence better health and better qualifications).
