English as a second language

Literacy Advance ESL Class

All Literacy Advance classes are free.

To come to class, you must:

  • Be 18 or older
  • Not be on probation for a violent crime
  • Have a Houston address, and not be a visitor or tourist.

We have 2 main programs:

1. Basic Reading and Writing

If you already speak English, but want to improve your reading and writing, you will join our Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes. These are classes in basic reading and writing. Each class has just one student. Each student meets with their own tutor.

2. English Speaking and Listening

If you want to speak and understand English better, you will come to our English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. These are classes in speaking and listening to English, with some reading and writing. Each class has 5 - 10 students with a tutor.

All our classes are for basic learning. We do not have GED, and we do not have advanced classes. When you are ready, we will help you with your next step through our Transition Program.

You must come to Student Registration before you can start classes.

Student Registration is held regularly at the main Wilcrest campus in West Houston, at the Bay Area campus, and at our far-west Houston campus in Waller County. NOTE: All 2016 registrations for the Wilcrest campus are now FULL. To make an appointment to register in 2017, call 713.266.8777 on December 20.

After you finish Student Registration, you will be on our waitlist.
We will call you when we have a class for you.
