Let Los Angeles sprinkle a little movie stardust on your English studies: keep your eyes open and you may spot the occasional celebrity strolling among the chic cafes, theaters and boutiques of Westwood Village. Westwood is no less exclusive than the glamorous neighboring districts of Beverly Hills and Bel Air – but as home to the prestigious University of California, Los Angeles, it’s as much a vibrant college town as a pampered celebrity hangout. Our Los Angeles Westwood school is just minutes away from UCLA, and a short bus ride from the gorgeous beaches of Santa Monica.
A packed social program includes acting workshops and surf lessons
Westwood is a pedestrian district and our school is just steps away from local bus stops and bikeshare schemes
A large, modern facility featuring a large outdoor courtyard and two comfortable student lounges and a music room
”I improved not only my English, I also learned a lot about other countries’ culture and people’s behaviour because there are many international students. I would recommend Kaplan to my friends who really want to study and at the same time enjoy life.”
