About Languages Programs

Strong English Language skills are important for success on the job and in school. There are a number of opportunities available at Houston Community College to improve your English language skills.

Our Languages and Citizenship department teaches English to adults through a curriculum that helps students learn the language skills for work and day-to-day life in the United States. The classes cover speaking, listening, reading and writing, along with vocabulary and grammar. We have lessons and activities that give you practice with real-life experiences such as filling out forms, reading labels, preparing for college and finding jobs. We also offer Citizenship classes, to help students prepare for the U.S. Citizenship Exam; Workplace English classes that help students who are English Language learners enrolled in HCC’s technical or skills training courses; and Workplace Spanish that teaches Spanish communications skills for the workplace.
