En cuestión al profesor que tuve, Louis, maravilloso. Recomendaría la residencia salvo por una cosa: el ruido por las noches. Me tuve que cambiar de bungalow porque mis vecinos más cercanos estaban poniendo música alta y cantando de las 23:00 en adelante. Al cambiarme a otra zona, al principio fue bien, pero luego mi vecino de atrás con el que comparto pared, se puso a invitar a sus amigos de las 23:00 en adelante varios días, riéndose y hablando en alto. Un día se quedó hasta la 01:00 así y no asistí a la primera clase del día siguiente por el cansancio acumulado de ese y de los últimos días.Por lo demás, es un buen sitio. Y algunas personas me comentaron que la gente a cargo de La Mirada está tomando medidas para terminar con lo del sonido, así que si lo consiguen genial. No participé en todas, pero en las que sí, fue muy bien.Las Vegas fue increíble.

Durant mes 8 semaines d'école j'ai changé 5 fois de professeurs alors que je n'ai pas changé de niveau. Il serait plus judicieux de faire en sorte qu'il y est toujours le meme professeur. Cependant, pendant 4 semaines j'ai eu le meme professeur a qui j'accorde 5 étoiles pour la methode d'enseignement et le dynamisme.

 Kings, Los Angeles
Duration: 3 weeks

The things I love the most here are the teachers who are always open to help us and the location because there is a lot of things to do around Hollywood! Universal Studios! Griffith Park, Santa Monica and Venice Beach. I really like the fact of shooting a movie during class, I learned a lot of stuff and it is very interesting.

Kings, Los Angeles
Duration: 3 weeks

After receiving a nice and professional advice from ESL, I decided to go to Kings College in Los Angeles, as the school is close to my residence. The school offers plenty of excursions, like for example Catalina Island or whale watching in New Port. The teaching method at school made me progress a lot. I had some gaps in writing, and my class focused exactly with that. Teachers were always very helpful and courses were varied. Los Angeles is a crazy city, with a very colourful population, but everyone is super nice and I don’t regret a single thing of my 3 weeks there – also because the weather was amazing!

Kings, Los Angeles
Duration: 4 weeks

I chose LA for the nice weather and because I wanted to go to California. I spent a hectic month there, the city is very welcoming and the people very friendly. I made friends with other students right from the start.
The school was really good and only 30 minutes’ walk from the residence. The teachers were very friendly and different to the ones in Europe.
If I had to do it again, I would leave for LA but this time forever. LA is definitely full of surprises.
