Teachers. Activities.
The lesson books are expensive for a tourist who can only follow the class for a week and can't use the whole book. If they had copy machine for student use in the reception, it would be convenient.

interesting course, it is simplistic to the fact that there was not even given a book as supplied. Welcoming family but very far from the school. Very disappointed to have paid for the single room and instead I found myself in a double.

    If you're happy with face-to-face classes, can you let us know your preferred start date and duration?

    We can shortlist a few schools and see if they are transferable.
    Mindlere Shin, LanguageCourse.Net - May 08, 2023

However, if you are an absolute beginner, if you have never studied English at all before, some schools have specific start dates throughout the year, which can be found in the profile of each of the language schools we work with in Los Angeles.
