EC Los Angeles 2019 Wrap-Up

2019 was another wonderful year for EC Los Angeles because we spent it with our amazing students! If you are interested in learning English in the United States, EC Los Angeles will not only offer you valuable courses but also take you to fun activities, making your experience unforgettable. Check out some of our 2019 activities to see why we love EC Los Angeles! ONLY IN LOS ANGELES Los Angeles owns the first Universal Studios theme park and the first Warner Bros. Studios, both of which are in the home of the U.S. film industry – Hollywood. For that reason, one of our favorite activities is to go to TV show tapings! In the past year, we went to live TV shows taping at Warner Bros. Studios and saw many celebrities in person. For example, Joey Tribbiani from FRIENDS always has live shows in Studio City. And guess what: The ticket to see him is free! Besides sitcom tapings, we also went to America’s Got Talent: The Champions. That night, former winners and finalists from 194 countries and regions gathered in LA to perform the best AGT show of the year. If you are a sports fan, you are going to love LA! Lakers and Clippers for NBA, Dodgers for baseball, Rams for football, LAFC for soccer…you name it! Earlier this year, we had an All-You-Can-Eat Dodgers Game with our students. If you love food and want to catch a home run ball, then you should join us next time! The other big game that attracts people from all over the world is the Lakers game. In October, we went to see Lakers vs. Warriors. LeBron James and Anthony Davis were there! Our students enjoyed a great time watching that intense game – only at EC Los Angeles ? Do … Read more

Coastal Cleanup Day

EC Los Angeles students and staff members participated in the largest volunteer event in the world! People from across the globe spent their Saturday September 21st, 2013 dedicating time to cleaning coastlines, marshes, diving spots, and more.  In particular, ECLA volunteered with Heal the Bay to cleanup Santa Monica Beach.  Four students, two teachers, and one administrative staff member put on their gloves, got their bags ready, and trekked through the sands in search of trash! With over 11,000 volunteers in the Los Angeles County, 24,055 pounds of trash found their way to the appropriate place. As a school located in the Santa Monica community, EC students and staff recognized the importance of contributing back to the local community and maintaining a clean environment.  EC Los Angeles would like to thank the students and staff who came out so early in the morning (9AM) to volunteer! Encourage more students and staff to attend our upcoming volunteer events.   Also, volunteering has its perks because volunteers for the Coastal Cleanup Day received free admission to the Santa Monica Aquarium for a day and received a free food voucher from a restaurant called Chipotle! Stay tuned for future volunteering events with EC Los Angeles!
