Vaclav - Czech Republic

Hollywood Campus Featured Student Vaclav is from Turnov, Czech Republic (100 kilometers from Prague). He graduated from high school last year. It had always been his dream to come to the United States. He now studies English in the High Intermediate program at MLI Hollywood. “The first weeks in America were really hard for me. I am confident, popular, outgoing, and talkative back home. But in America it was totally different. I was shy, diffident, and scared to talk to people and go places. I was depressed! I had never felt these feelings before. My father suggested that I start ...

Best English school for Brazilian in hollywood

“When I came to America I was scared because I didn’t speak English at all. But I didn’t let my fear stop me. I always tried to speak, even if I made mistakes. The thing that helped me improve my English the most was talking with everybody; uber drivers, barristas, and people on the street. I’m not shy so I start conversations with anyone who can breathe! Another thing that has helped my English is befriending not only Brazilians, but also people from other countries. It’s comfortable to be with people from your own country but you won’t improve your ...

Best TOEFL Class I've ever had

Westwood Campus Featured Student “My TOEFL class is the best class I have ever had. When I attend, I can improve all of my English skills- Listening, Writing, Speaking, and Reading. Kyle is such a funny teacher too- his jokes are always so interesting and funny. All the students in the class are very serious and motivated. Even though there are other Japanese students in the class, they only ever speak English, which is very helpful. The TOEFL schedule is set up so that we practice two skills per day, like Reading and Speaking one day, and Writing and Listening ...

Los Angeles is also a good place to enjoy dancing.

“I live in North Hollywood at a homestay. I chose the house because I like the house mother a lot. A friend of mine from school, Nanami, lived at the homestay and introduced me to the house mom. The best thing about living there is that there’s a pool in the building and a gym across the street. I get to improve my English skills because my homestay mom doesn’t speak Japanese. I would recommend homestay to students who want to practice their English with native English speakers. After school I like to paint, read, cook, and dance. I dance ...

Tips for future students
