Thousands of students come to California every year to study English, but very few discover an authentic experience.  California Language Academy was founded on the idea that language is living and vibrant.  It must be experienced in order to be fully appreciated and understood.  We believe that learning a language is achieved through hands-on, real world practice.
CLA has 2 schools: Los Angeles and San Diego.
