Hancock International College was established to provide quality education at affordable prices for students wishing to enter the fast growing instruction of English as a Second Language. While some schools only teach theoretical concepts, both students and Universities demand knowledge of the practical elements of the English language today. Hancock International College first opened its doors in Irvine, California in 2011. HIC has fostered the development of its Intensive ESL courses for all levels of English Language Learners, offering Intensive English courses for beginners to advanced speakers of ESL.
