California Language Academy was founded in 2010 by a husband and wife team with the mission of providing personalized, intimate, and engaging language learning services.
California Language Academy students are a part of our family and we make sure that they are well taken care of with a wide variety of student services, like student-centered lessons, Visa consultation, guided activities and so much more.
Los Angeles is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the United States, with a melting pot of different cultures, languages, food and traditions. Los Angeles is often billed as the “Creative Capital of the World,” one in every six people works in a creative industry. According to the USC Stevens Institute for Innovation, “there are more artists, writers, filmmakers, actors, dancers and musicians living and working in Los Angeles than any other city at any time in the history of civilization.” So if you are out having dinner with friends, the person sitting next to you can be a famous Hollywood Celebrity!
