Go to College

No TOEFL score needed! ESLA partners with several community colleges in Los Angeles County and Orange County so that you can attend college without taking the TOEFL test. We are also partnered with INTO, a specialized program for international students who wish to study at the university level.


ESLA’s iBT TOEFL and IELTS preparation programs are designed for students that need to take either test to enter a university or professional program in the US. Our courses help students attain higher scores on the iBT TOEFL or IELTS.

Student Life

At ESLA learning English is much more than studying from textbooks. Students have many opportunities to use and practice English outside the classroom through field trips, parties, and extracurricular clubs. Students use their English to make new friends, travel, and have fun!
