English school in Los Angeles Westwood

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

Our Los Angeles Westwood school

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
