All in all, the EC school, accommodation and leasure activities all were great! I want to thank you for organisation of my trip. It was interesting and positive experience.

EC Los Angeles is a modern learning space, just 5 minutes’ walk from Santa Monica beach.

Everything about Santa Monica is irresistible. There are countless shops and restaurants, more than three miles of white sandy beach, not to mention all the celebrities that can be spotted strolling out and about town.

EC Los Angeles is a modern learning space, just 5 minutes’ walk from Santa Monica beach and two minutes from all the dining, shopping, and nightlife of famous 3rd Street Promenade.

Around the corner is Third Street Promenade, a paradise known for its many movie theatres, restaurants, shops, street performers, and nightlife.

Nearby, the Santa Monica Pier draws in the crowds with the famous solar powered nine-story high Ferris wheel and the numerous tantalizing food stalls.

Courses

General English TOP CHOICE
From 16 years old 15 students per class 1 lesson — 45 minutes
Course starts every Monday and is for all language levels
2 October—13 October

General English will give you a practical understanding of the English language and take you all the way to fluency. See your confidence improve as we train you in all four communication skills: speaking, listening, reading, and writing.

EC's teachers are qualified and experienced. They create dynamic and motivating classes, designed to activate and build upon your strengths, whilst also giving focused attention to your weaker areas. The teachers believe you learn best when you are engaged in discussion and taking a full and active part in lessons. In other words, there will not be a moment when you are not directly involved in the class.

Your teachers are trained to deliver constant support and feedback within a relaxed and informal environment. Their care and encouragement will build your confidence as you progress. In addition to text books, your teachers will refer to authentic resources such as newspapers, videos, the internet and audio recordings. This will give you an understanding of how English is used in real contexts.

All in all, the EC school, accommodation and leasure activities all were great! I want to thank you for organisation of my trip. It was interesting and positive experience.

I was impressed by the adaptation system of new students at school. On my first day at EC school representatives have told us everything about the education process, how it works, organised a welcoming meeting with the school staff. All classes are extremely comfort and modern,

The host family I lived with was really great! They are so welcoming and helpful people. The have told me everything I needed about their home, transport, how it's better to reach the school.

EC Los Angeles left only positive memories. The school is spacious, bright. I was not afraid to go to the first class- teachers helped me a lot and answered all my questions. I met people from different countries, they inspired me to continue studying in the U.S. after the program!
