Data were collected in two stages, involving questionnaire and both individual and focus group interviews. Factors such as single-gender environment, the availability, proximity and access to support networks and flexibility of time were found to likely increase their access into the women-only English classes. Nevertheless, factors such as lack of information and limited provision of such classes were reported as obstacles
