Community Education’s ESL courses will also be starting at an earlier date this coming semester than in the past.

ESL night courses begin on the main campus on Monday, Jan. 13 with a class from 6 to 8:30 p.m. ESL classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays will be available beginning Jan. 14 from 6 to 9 p.m. at both the main campus and the Freeport CE Center.

Students can also choose to take a citizenship class at the Freeport CE Center beginning Jan. 14. These classes end in mid-April.   

Morning ESL classes will start in early February, with Monday and Wednesday classes beginning on Feb. 10, and Tuesday and Thursday classes starting Feb. 11. These classes run from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The ESL class on the main campus will be on Tuesday and Thursday from noon to 3 p.m., starting on Feb. 11.

“We’re trying to provide more options for the students by starting classes in early January and continuing in February,” said Community Education ESL/Citizenship Coordinator Juana Thomas. “We also have great instructors who are excited about the new semester. Registration is open now, so this is a great time to sign up for a class.”

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.

Registration is also ongoing for GED classes through BC Community Education, with course beginning in January.
