Fact 13

    Give the Gift of Literacy

    * Required


An adult's ability to speak and understand English is important if he/she is to participate fully in today's society.  The ESL classes are designed to help adults (18 years of age and older) to learn the four (4) basic communication skills - listening, speaking, reading, and writing - in ways that relate to everyday life.

The Literacy Council offers a variety of days, times and locations throughout Fort Bend County. Our class schedule is designed to meet the needs of our students.


What to Expect From Our ESL Classes:


Classes are held Monday through Friday and students progress at their own pace.  Students are allowed free use of our computer lab which contains ESL software.


Beginning, intermediate, and advanced ESL classes are offered as well as conversation classes which are held every Friday morning. These classes give non-native speakers of English the opportunity to develop their English speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills in real-life situations.  Students are given an oral assessment at registration in order to determine their fluency level.


ESL courses at the Literacy Council are designed with special emphases in mind - such as composition, speaking and listening, and academic content. Students in all ESL classes are strongly encouraged to practice reading, writing, speaking and listening every day; use English, both in and out of the classroom; and ask questions and express themselves actively in speaking and writing.
