To help new English speakers become skilled with the language, Beaufort County Community College has offered English Language Acquisition (ELA) in Beaufort, Hyde and Washington Counties for free. Now BCCC is offering even more opportunities by offering classes on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. These classes are ideal for new English speakers to better navigate contracts, business negotiations, the legal system and the educational system with confidence.
This hybrid ELA class is offered via Zoom or in person and will instruct adults who are limited in English proficiency or whose primary language is not English. The program is designed to help adults improve their English reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills in order to further education or enhance employment opportunities. Classes range from beginning to advanced levels, and students can also earn their high school equivalency. Classes will be offered online or in person to accommodate our students' needs.
Classes are also offered on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00 p.m–9:00 p.m., Monday and Wednesday evenings, and Monday and Thursday mornings from 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. (noon) on BCCC's main campus. Classes are also offered at the Hyde County Davis Center on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 6:00 p.m.–9:00 p.m.
The college also offers an English Language Acquisition Citizenship class that specifically prepares students to take the United States Citizenship test. It will cover topics such as civics, the U.S. government, history, geography, reading and writing. It will also cover tips on how to study for the test and how to most effectively prepare for the test. Classes take place on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 p.m.–9:00 p.m.
