Knowledge of Language and Life in the UK
At Idea Store Learning we can help you with your journey towards citizenship.
New requirements were introduced by the Home Office in 2013 in order to apply for UK citizenship or settlement. People applying must satisfy both of the following requirements:
• Pass the Life in the UK test and
• Have a speaking and listening qualification in English at B1 CEFR or higher (this is equivalent to E3 ESOL).

Preparation for Life in the UK for ESOL Learners
This course is aimed at ESOL learners at Entry Levels 3 who need to improve their English reading and writing skills before undertaking the Life in the UK test. It will help you to practise your language skills through a range of activities and materials adapted from the official handbook for the Life in the UK Test.

B1 English
Our B1 English course will support you to practise for the B1 English Speaking and Listening exam which you will sit at the end of this course. If your English language level is below B1 upon enrolment, we will advise you to join one of our ESOL courses at a lower level.
