On Friday, June 13th all four LSI schools got together for the Annual Summer Party. This exciting event took place in Little Tokyo in Downtown Los Angeles. The theme this year was the World Cup! Everyone was wearing the sports jersey of their favorite team. Students answered trivia questions about the World Cup and won some amazing prizes. Several students from each of the four schools competed in a talent show called “LSI’s Got Talent!” All of the performances were great and the winners were two Brazilian singers named Marcos and Juan, who won the grand prize of $500! After the talent show was over and all of the delicious food was eaten, some surprise Brazilian samba dancers showed up and got the dance party started. A DJ played some great music and all of the students danced until it was time to go home. Everyone had so much fun and went home with many happy memories.

On Sunday, June 15th, TOEFL teacher Katie of LSI South Bay LA took students on a four-mile hike in Rancho Palos Verdes at the Forrestal Nature Preserve. The students had the chance to meet local members of the South Bay hiking group and practice English with native speakers. It was great exercise with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. I hope you can join the next hike in the summer!

California is not only an amazing locale for weather. California, and especially the Los Angeles area, has a lot of beautiful places to enjoy your time.
If you like the city life, Los Angeles is one of the biggest and with more variety of shows and museums. It’s actually the second biggest city in the USA after New York, and the majority of the movie stars who usually work in Hollywood live here too. You can visit Universal Studios or a lot of places in the city, which surely you have seen in movies, advertisement or music video clips.
Santa Monica, which is merely a 30 minute drive from Downtown L.A., is one of the most famous beaches in the world. The image of the Ferris wheel and the rollercoaster on the pier is very famous and it is really cool to enjoy with the attractions that we have always watched on TV. It is not too expensive and surprisingly it is not too crowded.
Close to Santa Monica you have Venice Beach, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach, all of which are excellent places to spend your time walking on the beach or enjoying the relaxing life of their streets and restaurants. This is only LA, but California has thousands of amazing places to enjoy.
