My experience studying at Cal America was stupendous. First of all, the professors are very qualified. They always know the correct answers and the easiest explanations to teach us. Moreover, after studying just a few days, I felt like I was learning English with new friends. Also, the academic staff always helps me when I need it. The academic program is really complete, and it covers all areas. Furthermore, I enriched my knowledge by meeting students from different countries because they have shown me their customs, such as traditional cuisine, clothing and cultural tastes. Finally, I am very thankful to everyone to have this pleasant experience at Cal America. Felipe, Brazil


My experience within the institute was one of the best ones. It achieved my objective in the English course, the teachers are very good people and excellent teachers. All I have left is to say thank you to them and give them big hugs! We met a lot of people of different nationalities, which makes your stay pleasant. You learn about different cultures and meet new (and friendly!) people; for me they were of the best ones I’ve met and I will always keep them in my heart. Alberto, Mexico



I came to the United States a year and a half ago from Russia. I could barely speak English! At first, school was very difficult but gradually I learned to love it. Eventually, my English improved and now I believe that it is the easiest language to learn. Knowing English makes me more confident and provides me with more professional opportunities in my future career. Overall, I strongly believe that English is very important for success because of educational opportunities and globalization.

I envision myself working as a legal interpreter in the future. To pursue my goal, it’s necessary to obtain professional English skill, which will allow me to translate documents for my clients. Furthermore, in my hometown of Okinawa, there are numerous opportunities to speak English with foreigners. Therefore, English will widen my career goals, my world view, and my associates. Yoko, Japan



My life revolves around sports, specifically, competitive swimming. I came to the U.S. to improve my skills in swimming and to develop my English. In Los Angeles, I met interesting people that definitely changed my mind about American life. When I first arrived, I could only say a few words in English but CAL America helped me so much. I studied a lot of stimulating subjects, learned a great deal of knowledge, and established new friendships. I travel around the world a lot, but I definitely want to keep in touch with the special people. Next year I will study at an American University, where I can refine my mastery of English and swimming. Thank you Cal America!

Cal America is a wonderful institution, which makes studying English exciting.
