June 18, 2020 by HCDE Communications

More than 40 Harris County Department of Education Adult Education teachers are preparing for their summer English as a second language (ESL) and GED virtual classes which will begin in July. The no-cost classes feature teacher and classmates meeting online several times a week, combined with online learning programs.

Registration for free classes ends June 24. Students are assessed for learning levels beginning with an intake questionnaire and will be contacted by HCDE Adult Education staff: https://tinyurl.com/HCDEadulted.

“Now more than ever, it’s evident that technology should be a part of the learning process as a critical skill set,” HCDE Adult Education Director Stephanie Ross said.


“Engaging adult learners with technology skills with the assistance of their teacher during the pandemic helps prepare them for lifelong learning while also keeping them safe through social distancing.”

With 35 years of experience, HCDE Adult Education is the largest adult education program in the state. Adult learners are empowered by highly qualified teachers with the academic and workforce skills they need for lifelong learning success.

Classes include GED, adult basic education, adult secondary education, English as a second language, and English language civics (to prepare for citizenship exams).

Students will visit a central learning platform to gain assignments and assistance. Curriculum and online learning platforms used are proven, established systems. An information form must be completed to be considered for classes. Intake testing and orientation to online learning are part of the program.

“It’s never too late for learning, and we are very excited to launch our virtual learning platform this summer to help adult learners in a dual approach to education to combine technology with classroom learning,” Ross said.
