Classes were fun and you did not feel like a school... You can meet many nice students who mostly came from Japan and Spain.
Other comments
Dormitories were in a very bad condition. In my shower the water did not drain and the toilet worked only partly. Two of my room mates were moved from their 2-bedrooms to a 4-bedroom, even though they did not want it. I have the impression that the poorer your level of English is the worse they treat you...

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
If you go to LA for a long time to LA, I recommend getting a car. Try to visit Las Vegas, San Francisco and San Diego. The school is located in an excellent area. The dormitories are not luxurious but they are very well located and you can practice a lot of English with your flatmates.

The only problem ist hat they do not respect the maximum of 15 students per class. That is the only problem I saw.

I can recommend Los Angeles - there is so much to do. The school was in a perfect area. The teachers were very good and professional. The school didn't organize any freetime-activities. My hostfamily was perfect and lived closed to the school. All in all, I enjoyed my time in L.A.
