English school in Los Angeles Westwood

In the shadow of the Hollywood sign, the city of dreams lies under swaying palms in the California sun

Our Los Angeles Westwood school

Keep your eyes open and you may spot the occasional celebrity among the chic cafés, theaters and boutiques of Westwood Village. Westwood is no less exclusive than the glamorous neighboring districts of Beverly Hills and Bel Air; but thanks 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 English 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
  • The school is a large, modern facility featuring two comfortable student lounges and a music room
