Knott's Scary Farm

Last night several students from our Orange County campus visited Knott's Scary Farm for a real Halloween experience in America.  For all of them, it was their very first time. 

 A couple of them scared easily, so all the zombies and ghosts and other scary figures really tried to scar them to death.  

There were many haunted houses and scary rides.  Walking around the amusement park and hiding behind every corner was someone in a really scary costume.  They work there and it is their job to scare you as much as possible.  Some of the people had makeup on that looked like it was done by a professional Hollywood makeup artist.  Some of the students had such a good time that they are planning to go again next week!

Pizza Tuesday

Around 20 students from LSI Downtown joined teacher John for pizza at Pizza Rev last Tuesday night. At Pizza Rev, you can design your own personal pizza with any toppings you like for only $6.99 (Tuesdays only).

We are doing this every week, and students are finding it a good way to relax and use the English they learned in class, as well as making new friends! Why don't you join us next week?

Fun night in Pasadena: Art Night

On Friday, October 13th the city of Pasadena opened its museums' doors to the public. 

Once a year, the city hosts a free event where everyone gets the opportunity to discover the many museums surrounding the city center. 

 Our Pasadena TOEFL students enjoyed the multiple museum locations on Art Night.

Also, Hanine, our Arabic and French speaker, and students from the downtown LA campus went to the art walk in Pasadena! They visited different museums and art galleries and had a blast! 

It was the perfect evening!
