I came to California Language Academy - Los Angeles in the hopes of finding a Portuguese professor that would be able to help me with my accent. Having family roots in both Portugal and Brazil, the development of my Portuguese accent proved to be very interesting to say the least. I was also planning a permanent move to Brazil in the future (now only 4 days away) and I wanted to make sure that I was prepared language wise. In my experience, Portuguese is not a language that is in high demand in Los Angeles, especially compared to other foreign languages such as Spanish. California Language Academy - Los Angeles was the closest language school to my house that offered Portuguese classes, so I decided to give them a shot. Never attending a language school prior to this, I did not know what to expect. The first day I walk in, I was greeted by one of the coolest people that I'd ever met. Jessie Hill gave me a tour of the classrooms and broke down what I should expect if I decide to continue and actually do the program. As I said before, Portuguese isn't in too high demand, so I expected the only option for me would be private lessons. I chose the 10 class package and attended my private lessons every Wednesday night for one hour. My professor, Krista Heinrich, is the only teacher that anyone would ever need if wanting to learn Portuguese or English. She goes above and beyond what it means to teach. Her passion is making sure that the student is given exactly what he/she needs to grow. Saying that I was fortunate to have met her would be an understatement. Now that my class has been completed, I am still in close contact with Krista and her family! Krista is a true friend and an amazing professor who anyone would be lucky to have. The bottom line is this: the California Language Academy - Los Angeles is for everyone! This is a school whose staff has a strong passion for languages and an even stronger passion for teaching. Alissa and Ari Olgun truly are the sweetest people one could ever meet and are individuals one would aspire to be like. Jessie even hooked me up with Diego Ribeiro, Director of Recruitment and from Brazil, who has become such a cool friend. Whether it was talking about life abroad with Janine Krause before my class every Wednesday over a cup of coffee or losing track of time with Krista because we were having so much fun, I was extremely fortunate to have had this experience. California Language Academy is home. ...

How I miss this school! I felt like at home there, both at school and in a host family. I really liked it. Teachers - insanely friendly, every day asked me how I was doing, if everything was OK. This attitude to each student is a deserved respect and the desire to return there again. My host mother, Jolly, became like my second mother. We spent evenings with her, walked, watched movies, she even introduced me to some of her relatives. With Jolly we still communicate, she even promised to come to visit me! :) Thank you very much to this school and Linguatrip! I have only positive impressions and still miss the teachers, the city and the host family ......
