Adult Education and Literacy
What is Adult Basic Education?
Adult Basic Education offers Basic English as a Second Language, English Literacy & Civics classes and GED preparation at several locations in the Lone Star College Adult Basic Education service area.
The programs are designed for native and non-native speakers who want to improve their language skills and gain the core skills they need to obtain a GED.
Classes are available for free on a first come, first served basis.
Basic English as a Second Language
The ESL program provides free basic courses for adult students whose first language is not English. Classes are available for beginning students with limited reading and writing ability, as well as more advanced students. Testing is required to determine class placement and to monitor progress.
GED Preparation Classes
The GED program offers adults without a high school diploma, an opportunity to complete their high school education, improve basic education skills, and enhance their employment situation through courses which prepare students for the GED test. Orientation and assessment for appropriate placement are required.

ESL classes helped me pass the test to become a U.S. citizen. Now my vote will count in the next presidential election.
