ENGLISH FOR SPEAKERS OF OTHER LANGUAGES (ESOL) 

ESOL students are an important part of the HTC college community. HTC’s goal is to help ESOL students be successful at HTC and beyond. Students who want to succeed in a technical college program need a good understanding of English, a strong vocabulary, good study skills, and knowledge of American culture. They also need to learn some of the special vocabulary that is used in training for different careers.

HTC has set up services to assist immigrant students as they pursue their education. The ESOL advisors are available to discuss your educational support service needs such as:

  • Course selection and review of accuplacer test scores
  • Career exploration
  • Financial aid applications
  • Scholarship applications
  • Referrals to tutoring and mentoring
  • Community service referrals

The goal of ESOL is to prepare students for enrollment in career programs. Courses focus on student’s academic and career skills. Students will learn reading, writing, listening, speaking, leadership, and technology skills needed in the college classrooms. Classes also introduce students to vocabulary needed for success in math classes. Special courses will be offered for students with manufacturing or nursing majors. ESOL courses are for students with an intermediate-level of English or higher.
