English school in Golden West College

Discover an endless summer on the shores of California’s Orange County, in a place known as “Surf City, USA”

Our Golden West College school

With perfect waves breaking on ten miles of warm golden sands, Huntington Beach has been a haven of surf culture for more than a century. When you’re ready to step off your board, try beach volleyball, or relax beside one of 500 free fire pits and watch the sun sink into the sea over the landmark pier. Our Huntington Beach English school is located on the campus of Golden West College, a community college providing two-year arts degrees

”At break time, you are talking with your friends and telling jokes, and you realize that all of your friends are from different countries, cultures and languages. We can’t understand each other with our own languages, but we can understand each other by using English even if it is not perfect. How cool is this?”
