Academic ESOL focuses on academic-bound students. It emphasizes preparation for college study while at the same time teaches students about American culture and English for everyday living, and communication with Americans. We offer academic courses in reading, writing, oral communication, and grammar.
There are five levels of instruction for reading, writing, and grammar and four levels for oral communication. Learn More »

Basic ESOL Adult Education and Literacy
Basic ESL focuses on survival classes for students who primarily want to learn English for everyday life, employment skills enhancement, and to assist them in situations such as obtaining housing, shopping, and communicating at work. These classes are for true beginners, including those who have very limited reading and writing ability.
Instruction in the Basic English classes is free, and these classes are offered only at LSC-North Harris. Open to adults over the age of 18 who need to improve their basic education for personal, academic, or employment goals. Students 17 and older can enroll in these classes provided they have officially withdrawn from school, and have a signed parental permission. Learn More »
