Language Learning at Baltimore City Community College
The Baltimore City Community College offers RAP (Refugee Assistance Program) classes to help students improve their English language ability, develop skills necessary to find employment, and function in their everyday English language environment. Additionally, RAP classes provide a supportive classroom environment with instructors who are able to respond to individual students’ language needs. Flexible day and evening schedules allow students to arrange their study time around their work life. RAP serves adult refugees and asylees who have lived in the U.S. for five years or less. RAP has culturally and professionally diverse staff and instructors that are motivated and committed to the success of the program’s students. The Maryland Office for Refugees and Asylees (MORA) provides grant funding for the program. All RAP classes are free for students.
