ESOL Learners Take Giant Strides To Recognise Refugees

College ESOL learners put their best foot forward to support Refugee Week 2021.

The group linked up with Warwickshire County Council’s Youth Support network to take part in a sponsored walk from Coventry to Warwick during the final day of the ‘We Cannot Walk Alone’ initiative on Friday 18th June.

‘We Cannot Walk Alone’ was the theme for Refugee Week 2021 – a UK-wide festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of people seeking sanctuary.

A programme of arts, culture, sport and education events enables people from different backgrounds to connect and helps them to understand why people are displaced and the challenges they face to seek safety.

The College has a strong ESOL (English for Speakers of Other languages) programme provision and caters for learners from all corners of the globe who want to learn English as a second language.

ESOL Tutor Fatima Reszczynski said: “The weather wasn’t great on the day but the group were determined to support the walk and wear their ‘Never Walk Alone’ t-shirts with pride.

‘They were pleased to team up with Warwickshire Youth and play their part in the week long initiative.

“Well done to all of them for getting involved and standing as one with other young people in the county to recognise refugees.”
