Known for its beautiful coastline and year-round sunshine, San Diego attracts people from all over the world. Students can enjoy a variety of activities including sports, shopping, dining and art in what is known as America’s Finest City! San Diego’s beaches are a favorite among visitors and locals alike. You can surf some of the world’s best waves in Coronado, kayak in La Jolla Shores or experience the lively entertainment and art in Pacific Beach. Avid shoppers enjoy major malls like Horton Plaza, Fashion Valley and UTC featuring international fashion houses, leading department stores and popular retailers. In addition, areas like Little Italy and La Jolla are home to multiple boutiques showcasing local talent. CEL San Diego is situated in the heart of Downtown on the lively street of Broadway.
Pacific Beach is an iconic beach town in San Diego attracting college students and young adults living the California dream. Located between the neighborhood of Mission Bay and the sophisticated city of La Jolla, PB (as the locals call it) has multiple attractions for everyone to enjoy. The center of all the excitement is on Garnet Avenue, which stretches perpendicular to the beach ending at the 3-mile Ocean Front boardwalk. Traveling around PB by foot or bike is quite popular since everything is located relatively near. One of the most notable attractions in this neighborhood is Crystal Pier, dotted with Cape Cod style cottages and shops overlooking the majestic Pacific Ocean.
Conveniently located a few miles from Los Angeles, next to Venice and a short drive to popular attractions like
Disneyland and Hollywood, Santa Monica is a beach city with all of the culture, events and comforts of an active
metropolis. During the day discover mouthwatering cuisines at Ocean Avenue and pick up fresh blooms from the
farmer’s market. Head over to Venice Beach to enjoy some of the city’s best entertainment, as crowds gather to be
dazzled by performers, or go on an outdoor adventure by hiking to the Hollywood sign. As the evening approaches,
Santa Monica lights up with its thriving nightlife.
The general English language courses are based on a curriculum developed to help students improve their English
language skills and achieve academic success. Students will gain confidence and fluency in the areas of reading, writing, listening, speaking, grammar and vocabulary. CEL offers 6 levels of general English language courses. Small classes (average of 6-7, maximum of 10 students per class) ensure that students benefit from individualized attention as teachers cater class material to their personal learning style. New courses start every Monday and each lesson is 45 minutes long.
Our private lessons are the most effective method of learning English as the class is focused purely on your needs.
Lessons can be combined with General English as well.
Cambridge Exam Preparation
CEL offers FCE and CAE exam preparation courses throughout the year. Students must be at the upper intermediate level to take the FCE prep course. Those interested in taking the CAE prep course must be at the advanced level. Cambridge exam prep classes are kept small (an average of 6 and a maximum of 10 students) so teachers can work one-on-one with students and use the best tools fit for each student’s learning style.
This standardized test measures the English-language ability of non-native speakers who are interested in attending English-speaking universities. The TOEFL preparation course allows students to focus exclusively on preparing for the exam. Experienced teachers provide students with test taking strategies, practice tests and the skills necessary to be successful on the TOEFL test.
Finding the right accommodation in a foreign country can be stressful and we understand that feeling at home is a crucial part of your study abroad experience.
