Learn English

If you or someone you know would like to learn to speak basic English, we can help. Our tutors work with small groups of learners to help them achieve fluency in ordinary English communication.  Students must be 18 years of age or older and a resident of Hillsborough County, Florida.

To register as a student with the Hillsborough Literacy Council please call 813.273.3650 and leave a message.  We will return your call as quickly as possible. Please be sure to state your name and phone number clearly.  If you will need a translator, please let us know what language you speak.  Our office hours are Monday – Friday, 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM. 

Our tutoring program is for adults who need to learn to speak basic English.  If you need more advanced English language classes, check out this list of programs.


If you would like to practice speaking English without getting a tutor, or while you wait to be matched with a tutor, please visit our English Practice page to learn more about our “Conversation Corner” groups.
