The MESA OUTREACH INC. formerly (HNwCC) Board of Directors recognizes the significant need for language training in its surrounding community, and is committed to successfully offering ESL classes. Harris County budget cuts ended their previously well attended HNwCC sponsored ESL classes in 2015. In the spring of 2017 HNwCC will once again offer classes on both Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday. Each session will be three hours long and run for 12 weeks. An anticipated 40 students will pay a small tuition fee per semester in order to have a personal investment in the program, and help offset costs. HNwCC anticipates offering two classes in each of the spring, the summer and the fall. HNwCC has hired a certified teacher with significant experience in this type of instruction
Curriculum for the course will be based on the Ventures series from Cambridge University Press. This material is a six level, integrated skills textbook with life-skills content (reading, writing, listening and speaking) aimed at immigrant and refugee learners of ESL. Prospective students are tested for current proficiency and classes will be structured to the needs of the particular student population.
