Students from a past English as a Second Language class at Brazosport College work together in a classroom discussion.
With an emphasis on increasing opportunities for our local communities, Brazosport College’s Community Education program is expanding its GED and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes to three new locations.
Beginning this coming fall semester, in addition to GED and ESL classes currently offered at the BC Main Campus and the Freeport CE Center, Brazosport College will also offer GED classes at Columbia High School in West Columbia and the Marshall Center in Angleton, while an additional ESL class will be offered at the Brazoria Library in Brazoria.
“We’ve added locations in order to provide more options for our community,” said Grant Project Manager Kay Brooks. “We want to make it as easy as possible for anyone wanting to take our classes.”
Actually, taking GED and ESL classes through Brazosport College is simple. Not only are the courses now offered at locations throughout southern Brazoria County, they also remain free of charge. The college’s Citizenship Classes are also free.
GED classes do require a GED textbook and calculator, which are $40.
Registration begins on Aug. 4 and classes start on Aug 25. One can register at the Community Education Center on the Brazosport College main campus or the Freeport CE Center at 211 E. Park Ave.
ESL classes are open to anyone 18 years of age or older, and many of the instructors speak multiple languages. The ESL courses have six levels of progression, beginning with no experience in the English language.
For more information call the Community Education Center on the BC Main Campus at (979) 230-3600 or the Freeport CE Center at (979) 230-3597.
