LASC has three campuses across sunny Southern California. Our locations are just minutes away from some of California's most popular tourist attractions and situated in areas that offer plenty of amenities, as well as ample housing and entertainment options. Learn how to surf at Huntington Beach, the surf capital of the world. Take a trip to Disneyland, shop on Rodeo Drive, walk the stars on Hollywood Boulevard or cruise down Pacific Coast Highway to take in the sights. At LASC we strongly encourage our students to leave the four walls of our classrooms and go out to experience all that California has to offer. Our aim is to employ our students with the language skills they need to operate and interact with the world around them. So, what are you waiting for? Let's start exploring!
Lo que pienso sobre LASC? Después de haber estado en otro colegio de Inglés, creo que LASC es un colegio serio y muy profesional para aprender inglés. Tienen clases muy interesantes para estudiantes de nivel avanzado como aprender sobre los diferentes modismos. Todos los profesores con los que he tomado clases son realmente calificados como profesores de Inglés como segundo idioma.

Ja fui aluno de outras duas escolas de ESL aqui nos Estados Unidos, com isso, pude notar que aqui na LASC, como aluno do Mestre Thomas Dude eu pude, além de aprender inglês, pude aprender sobre a cultura e a história dos Estados Unidos. Isso definitivamente foi essencial para melhorar o meu entendimento da língua inglesa
LASC-Irvine is fantastic!!! They have different English levels from beginning to advance, and also TOEFL class. School has partnered with many colleges and universities that student can apply without TOEFL scores as long as they finished the certain level. Their teacher’s team is excellent!!! Students are really enjoy their classes and they can make many friends. School staffs are also very good and polite. They have Japanese rep, Chinese rep, Middle eastern rep, so they can provide bilingual service. LASC is credited by ACCET and can issue F1 initial I20 and change of status I20. So if anyone need F1 status, LASC is a good choice.

Английский язык с нуля я начала изучать в LASC. Эта школа способна дать все необходимые знания и навыки английского языка и американской культуры: произношение, понимание, умение говорить , используя правильные слова и фразы. Учителя этой школы – это главное ее достояние. Именно учителя LASC превращают мое изучение языка в увлекательный и познавательный процесс.
