Learn English in Los Angeles
The Californian metropolis of Los Angeles is certainly one of the most attractive cities for a language course. You get to see the glamorous image and the prestigious neighbourhoods such as Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Malibu & Co. Let’s face it, who doesn’t dream to stroll on Venice beach in the sun and then walk along the Hollywood Walk of Fame? LA is the second largest city of the United Sates, after New York and is the most populous on the west coast. In the "Greater Los Angeles Area", there are about 18 million people, making it one of the most populous metropolitan areas in the world. Particularly, in this case the "Angelenos" (name of the citizens of Los Angeles) comprise of 140 nationalities and speak over 220 languages, which is why the city is one of the most ethnically diverse in the world. This offers the students to broaden their cultural horizons and to see the exciting attractions of Los Angeles.
Our School Location
Our language schools are selected according to very strict criteria in order to guarantee a certain quality of teaching. An important accreditation for our language school comes from the ACCET (Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training). This organisation concerns itself with the endorsement of institutions in the field of education. ALTO (Association of Language Travel Organisations) is a global umbrella organization of language schools and travel agencies.
"If I had the chance, I would’ve stayed longer. The school is in a great location and is a huge, modern building located near the beach and the city centre. All the teachers and the staff did a great job. They were warm, friendly, happy and reliable. The language school organizes many exciting activities like sky-diving, trips to San Diego, Las Vegas or Hollywood. I wanted to thank you for this simply wonderful experience and I can recommend the school to everyone. I really enjoyed my month here in Los Angeles."
"Thanks to the school, I now speak English better and my pronunciation has also majorly improved. My most favourite memory is indoor skydiving with my classmates and my very lovely teachers. However, also the dinners together with everyone were also a lot of fun. To potential students: there is a lot to look forward to here. It is a very new and modern school and is centrally located on the Santa Monica beach. The staff are also very nice, and should you ever have a problem with anything, they will always have time for you."
"My experiences at the language school were fun and interesting! It was really amazing! The level of English was very good and I learnt a lot. Just in three weeks, I was able to really get to grips with English. My classes were great, as were the teachers. To any potential students: You should really come to the school because of its location as it’s awesome! The school is new and everything is clean and perfect. Santa Monica is beautiful and I will highly miss my time here."
"The classes are very interesting and our class was small (only 5 students) which I liked. Our teachers were friendly and relaxed. Our classes finished at 12.15 so that we had enough time to go shopping, lie on the beach or go and visit the city. I would definitely do it again! To experience LA is fantastic!"
