Classes at Los Angeles English

When you come to Los Angeles English for the first time, you will be greeted by volunteers at the front desk and asked to fill out a registration form. Our volunteers will help you determine the class that will be most suitable for your level and needs. At their own expense, many of our missionaries have left studies at accredited universities to come serve in Los Angeles. They teach these English classes as a service, so student tuition is waived.

Los Angeles English has locations throughout the area. Each location specializes in teaching English to students with specific native languages like Chinese, Farsi, Korean, Russian, or Spanish. Check out our locations below to find the most convenient class for you.

Transition from Chinese to English

on May 3, 2017

Learning English isn’t just about learning the rules, but also the exceptions to the rules.
