Kish adult education classes open for fall

Kishwaukee College will offer a variety of free classes for English language learners and those seeking their High School Equivalency/GED (in English or Spanish) this fall.

English as a Second Language classes are available for beginning, intermediate and advanced English learners. Classes emphasize speaking, listening, reading and writing in English.

High School Equivalency classes prepare students to take the GED exam. Subject areas covered in class include reading, writing, social studies, science, math and the U.S. Constitution. These classes emphasize practical application of the subjects and total development of the learner.

As part of the GED preparation classes, a special Bridge to Healthcare Careers course will be offered this fall. This special GED course will help learners gain tools and experience to prepare for employment in the health care field. Enrollment for these classes is open through Sept. 10.
