Yes, I recommend this program

I totally recommend this ESL program!

I had an amazing time at LAPC. I was looking for an ESL program in LA that was not expensive and that the hours wasn't too long since I also wanted to do some tourism. I was able to learn a lot and my English skills improved too. The class size is small which is good since you can interact more with each other. The professors and staff are very friendly, they help you answering your questions/concerns. Even when you can't understand something they take their time to explain so they make you feel really good. You won't regret it.

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
Lychee fruit ( I had it by itself and as ice cream and it was ok) and boba tea (I didn't like the taste or those little chewy balls) but it was good experience.
