Literacy Advance ESL Class
All Literacy Advance classes are free. For this reason, there is a wait list. You will probably wait to register, and after you have registered, you will wait again for classes.
We are sorry that you must wait. Many people want classes. Thank you for understanding, and being patient. We help as many people as we can.
Who can come to class?
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.
What classes are there?
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.
Do you have GED?
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.
What do I do to start class?
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.
To make an appointment to register at Wilcrest, call 713.266.8777 on Friday, February 24, 2017.
To ask about registration at Bay Area, call 281.282.6032 during the week.

What will happen next?
After you finish Student Registration, you will be on our waitlist.
We will call you when we have a class for you. You will probably wait at least 4 - 6 weeks.
