  • Little Bridge - free digital ESOL resource for beginners, children and family learning: This ESOL learning project for primary/secondary children and their parents is designed to be a fun way to develop basic English and ICT skills via digital learning. The family learning model enables children to learn with their parents. It can be used in a variety of settings: at home, in a library, community centre, ESOL lessons and even schools. Some of it runs as an app on smartphones but generally it runs on a multimedia PC with sound and a microphone. Little Bridge is now available, free of charge, to all refugees and asylym-seekers. Further information can be found by contacting Sarah White on either​ or 0208 935 5689.
