"“I came here to L.A. by myself and I was afraid of being alone, but I didn’t feel alone. My host family, Carmen and her son Julian, they are such sweet people. When I arrive at the school, the staff of CLA is amazing. You feel confident to speak, you don’t get afraid of J speaking to the teachers and your classmates. And it was like one month of home for me. I am going to miss this very much. Thank you CLA for this amazing experience.”"

"“It is a small family run school which made me feel like home studying most of time with loving, helpful teachers. They mostly had small group of people in the class and it seemed the teachers could focus on each student’s individually include me and that’s what I was looking for when I choose this institution. All the teachers and staff were very nice and helpful all the time even after the class. I had wonderful time there! And miss all the people from school. I highly recommend this wonderful school to all.” Terry, Korea Business English Program"
