"It deserves the price if someone wants to experience life in LA and learn English."

Kelly Huang, student from USA

The location is perfect, and the schedule as well. The classrooms are big enough and most activities are very funny. What I don't like is some teachers are not really good at teaching ESL students, but I know they are elevating their teaching skills.

"Short experience but highly recommended"

Emma Miñana, student from Spain

I was only in Los Angeles for two weeks, but I was able to take advantage of the classes and meet very cool people! The teachers are very attentive as are all the people in the school. The great location, you already have metro and bus options at all hours. my program was only given in the morning and I could only attend at night and without any problem they facilitated the change. I have really enjoyed the experience

"Teachers are great."

Qusy Bema, student from Saudi Arabia

I like how the teachers give us all lessons and they are so friendly. The times for all of the classes are so good and you can improve your language by talking with your partner. All of the tests are easy and you have a chance to make up work for the classes you were absent for.
I'm so thankful to have studied here. I really improved my language and also I'm happy with the service from the employees. Thank you.

visa

Visa support

We cannot apply for visas on behalf of students. However, the school can supply you with all the documentation you need to support your visa application.

If you are studying full time in the United States for more than 18 hours per week, you will receive an I-20 that you need to submit to the US embassy along with your F-1 student visa application. The I-20 has a SEVIS tracking number on it. Students who wish to apply for a student visa must pay the SEVIS fee online before going to the US embassy or consulate for their visa interview.

Your I-20 will be sent to your home address by regular mail at no charge to you. If you wish to receive your paperwork by express mail, you will be charged $100 when you register.

Please note that United States law states that an I-20 can only be issued to students who intend to pursue full-time English language studies. United States law does not permit students to study part-time with an F-1 Student Visa. If you are studying for less than 18 hours per week, you have to apply for a Visitor Visa (B1/B2) on your own.

When you book a course with us, you can opt to purchase an international insurance plan that covers not only your health care cost but also loss of your personal belongings. You must book your insurance in advance when you register.

Dyan Test, student from USA

Transfer students do not need a new I-20 when they apply because their current I-20 will be released to LSI. They will only need a transfer form and acceptance letter. Then once
the students have successfully started the program at LSI, they will be issued a new LSI I-20 which will maintain their student status. However, please make sure previous to the application that the student's I-20 is *in status and are eligible to transfer*. Otherwise, students will not be able to register as transfer students.
