School Overview

EC welcomes over 45,000 students each year to its slick and centrally-located schools across the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Malta and South Africa.

EC Los Angeles is a modern learning space, just a 5-minute walk from Santa Monica beach – the ultimate stretch of Southern Californian coastline where the sun shines 340 days a year – and two minutes from all the dining, shopping, and nightlife of the famous Third Street Promenade.

Cycling along the beach between Santa Monica and Venice whilst spotting a celebrity at the local juice bar are everyday activities that our EC students enjoy when they’re not in class. There is a “must-see” tourist spot everyday of the week, such as the Hollywood Sign and the Griffith Observatory, but there are also hidden gems the city has to offer in its trendy neighbourhoods. If a vibrant and eclectic city is where you want to learn English, this is the EC Experience for you.

I wanted to come to Los Angeles and Santa Monica is the most beautiful and peaceful place in Los Angeles. My teachers are very good and friendly. I’d recommend my EC to my friends because of the location and the school is huge.
