Community Education registering for free GED, ESL courses

Wed Dec 3, 2014

Brazosport College’s Community Education program is currently registering for its GED, English as a Second Language (ESL) and Citizenship classes.

Better yet, the classes are free and are offered at a variety of locations around the area.

GED and ESL Classes are being offered at both the BC Main Campus and the Freeport CE Center, while GED courses are also being offered at two new sites at Columbia High School in West Columbia and the Marshall Center in Angleton. The spring 2015 Citizenship class is on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the Freeport CE Center.

“We’ve have different 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 approximately $55.

Registration is taking place now and classes start on Jan. 12. 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.
