Find an ESL and GED class

English as a Second Language (ESL) coursework is designed to help students who are looking to learn English as their second, third, or in some cases, fourth language. These programs provide teachers who are there to help students develop their speaking, writing, reading, and listening skills in English.

Texas adult learners who are interested in high school equivalency testing can choose between three tests: the GED (General Education Development), the TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion), and the HiSET (short for simply High School Equivalency Test).

English as a Second Language

Your Library is proud to partner with Birdville Adult Education, offering free English as a Second Language (ESL) classes. Classes are held on the 2nd floor of the library in The Maker Spot and require advanced registration. 

For more information about these ESL classes visit the BISD Adult Education Website, or call 817-547-5440.
