English for Action

A short film for English for Action, commissioned and supported by the European Commission.

"English for Action (EFA) is an action-orientated charity that works with over 450 migrants, refugees and asylum seekers per year across London, to build their capacity in challenging systems of structural oppression. EFA (1) provides free English courses utilising a methodology we call participatory ESOL; and (2) trains our students in community organising, to ensure they are ready to take on leadership roles and take direct action on the local, regional, and national issues most important to them. Since its inception, EFA has provided over 9,000 classes to over 3,500 English learners across the capital and has trained over 900 ESOL practitioners in our participatory pedagogy."
