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.

Learning English Plus is a growing database of teaching resources, news, events and training opportunities to support ESOL provision across the Yorkshire and Humber region.
