Ice Skating at Pershing Square - Downtown L.A.

Last Saturday, December 13, evening teacher Martin took 10 students to go ice skating Downtown at Pershing Square.
Every November the City of Los Angeles erects an ice rink at Pershing Square where people can ice skate for just $12.
Students from Brazil, Japan, Mongolia, Taiwan and Venezuela enjoyed the activity immensely.

Hike at the Donald Trump Golf Course


On Sunday, December 14th the South Bay LA Campus went on a hike at the Donald Trump Golf Course in Rancho Palos Verdes. This hike has sweeping ocean views and a picnic area.  


Students joined TOEFL teacher Katie and ESL teacher Kurt on this outdoor, rugged adventure. At the end, we had coffee at the indoor cafe and watched the sun go down. It was a great day for outdoor exercise on the coast of California.

The Hotel Café in Hollywood, CA

Last Saturday night, students from Language Systems - LA Campus ventured to one of Hollywood’s premier music venues – The Hotel Café. Despite the name, it is neither a hotel nor a café, but instead a restaurant and bar which features some of LA’s top talent playing in a comfortable, ambient lounge setting. 

On this particular evening, the students came to the Hotel Café to hear the musical stylings of Smithfield Bargain, an LA-based jazz-folk band, as well as the music of an amazing group of three girls called The Honey Whiskey Trio.  

Situated in one of Hollywood’s best walkable areas near Cahuenga and Hollywood Blvd, it’s easy to find something to suit your fancy. Bonus: it's close to a metro stop, so no need to worry about traffic or parking!
