If you find yourself struggling because English is not your first language, visit the Enrollment Center. We offer Non-credit English for Speakers of Other Languages (NC ESOL) classes for students who want to improve their English skills.

Choose from a variety of NC ESOL classes, from "basic" for students new to the language, to "advanced" for students who want to continue to improve their English skills. Weekday and Saturday in-person classes, lab classes, and online classes are available. Online classes feature voice recognition and language learning for specific career fields, along with the convenience of studying at your convenience - anywhere, anytime! See the Non-Credit ESOL brochure (.pdf).
In order to take non-credit ESOL classes you must first take an assessment test and pay the non-credit class fee. To get started, visit the GCC Enrollment Center and ask about NC ESOL classes currently offered.
