The center was founded in 1971 as a private school for teaching English. Located right in the heart of San Diego, its facilities include classrooms, a language laboratory, a computer lab and a student lounge.
During the first 3 weeks of the course, the student will receive 20 lessons per week in international groupings of 8 students maximum. All students will take an obligatory level test on the first day to determine each student's English level and corresponding course level. Each lesson is equivalent to 45 minutes of class.
A city that offers so many options has allowed us to organize a program that combines English classes with a touristic route. The program consists of 4 weeks, 3 of which are held in San Diego. The fourth week students will go on a tour to visit the main tourist attractions.
During the "Touristic Week" the students will be accompanied by an English teacher, for the students will have to do a daily "workshop" to be evaluated by the teacher.
The final course certificate will be handed out at the end of the "Touristic Week" and the evalution will consist of the first 3 weeks of classes and the workshops developed during the last wek of the course.
