Language Systems International College of English, accredited by ACCET, was founded in 1987 with the purpose of providing a multitude of language-related services. Its main goal is to give instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL) and test preparation to international students. Language Systems provides high-quality language programs designed to build students’ skills and self-confidence when communicating in English in either academic or professional situations. Language Systems provides language instruction that helps international students function successfully in an English-speaking environment, introduces study habits common to those expected at American institutions of higher learning, and assists in the development of critical abilities to think, read, write, listen, and communicate effectively in English.

Language Systems has four locations in the Los Angeles area of Southern California: Downtown Los Angeles, Northeast Los Angeles, South Bay Los Angeles, and Orange County. Each school is located in a uniquely different neighborhood, all surrounded by interesting attractions and plenty of things to do. Some of the popular sites near the LA campus include The Hollywood Walk of Fame, Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, and Universal Studios. There are many quality educational institutions located near the Northeast LA campus, including California State University at Los Angeles and Pasadena City College. Students at the South Bay Los Angeles campus will find plenty of shopping centers, entertainment facilities, beaches and parks. There are several well- known beaches near the Orange County campus, which is also just minutes away from Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm. In addition, students typically live within walking distance of the school, and ride a bicycle or take local buses to class. Language Systems also facilitates homestay opportunities for students wishing to live with an American family.
