Keep your eyes open and you may spot the occasional celebrity among the chic cafés, theaters and boutiques of Westwood Village whilst you learn English in LA. Westwood is no less exclusive than the glamorous neighboring districts of Beverly Hills and Bel Air; but thanks to the prestigious University of California, Los Angeles, it’s as much a vibrant college town as a pampered celebrity hangout.
We have delayed the physical reopening of our Los Angeles school due to local government advice for Coronavirus. Our Seattle school reopened on 31 August with enhanced safety measures. Find out more.
Our Los Angeles Westwood English school is just minutes away from UCLA, and a short bus ride from the gorgeous beaches of Santa Monica
A packed social program includes acting workshops and surf lessons
Westwood is a pedestrian district and our school is just steps away from local bus stops and bikeshare schemes
The school is a large, modern facility featuring two comfortable student lounges and a music room
”I improved not only my English, I also learned a lot about other countries’ culture and people’s behaviour because there are many international students. I would recommend Kaplan to my friends who really want to study and at the same time enjoy life.”
