Find your English class


Welcome to Learning English in Yorkshire and the Humber – LEYH!

On this website you can find information about English language classes in your area and across the Yorkshire and Humber region.

You can find out which classes are free, where they are held, what level they are and whether childcare is available. 

We hope the website will be useful to learners, providers and support staff working with migrants in many different organisations.

I love the new Learning English website because the learners can have a look at all the provision near them and make the best choice for their own situation.
