CEL Pacific Beach

CEL Pacific Beach

Located steps from the popular Pacific Beach in Southern California, our partner school offers a winning combination: high quality English classes in a relaxed atmosphere. This means students can not only enjoy the beach and the many cafés and restaurants that line it, but also benefit from excellent language programmes specifically designed for international students. What’s more, the Mission Bay beaches are just a few hundred meters away, offering participants access to two very popular hotspots! The school building is entirely air-conditioned and includes 8 bright classrooms, a student lounge, a few computers and free Wi-Fi. Classes are made up of 7 students on average (max. 12) so teachers may devote enough time to each student without slowing down the teaching pace.
