Adult Literacy

LVCC offers a range of programs that helps adults get the skills they need to be productive workers, family members and citizens.  Our curriculum enables participants to become proficient in English so they may succeed in their new country and contribute to the diverse community of Collier County. 

Aligned with the Florida Department of Education Curriculum ESOL framework, focus is on:

  • speaking
  • reading, writing, and vocabulary
  • listening comprehension

LVCC’s Adult Literacy Classes are conducted in two ways:

Young man studying
One adult tutoring another at a table with open books.

One-On-One Tutoring

Certified ProLiteracy tutors meet with adult students at different locations throughout Collier County once or twice a week for an hour or more. One-on-One tutoring takes place in local libraries, community centers, church facilities, educational/social service centers and LVCC offices – any public place that is convenient for both the student and tutor.

Student Fees: $50/yr.*


Learning in a group atmosphere is perfect for students who enjoy meeting others who are learning English. Group classes focus on collaborative learning and encourage communication and teamwork skills.

  • open to beginning, intermediate and advanced students
  • held during the day, afternoon and evening
  • 3 to 10 students per class

Student Fees: $25/yr.*
