Come experience the relaxed vibe of Southern California at its best! Spanish Renaissance and Mission style buildings of the University of San Diego campus set the tone for a beautiful two, three, or four-week stay at CISL’s USD Summer English Camp.

CISL English classes Monday through Friday allow students to interact with other international students and a certified ESL instructor in a warm, engaging, and professional environment. With CISL’s small-class policy, no more than 10 students are placed in each class, ensuring students receive the attention needed to improve their English skills. In addition to English classes, students of the USD program take part in cultural workshops and also have the opportunity to explore beautiful San Diego through CISL-organized afternoon activities. Events include trips to the San Diego Zoo, shopping at Fashion Valley Mall, surfing and biking on Pacific Beach, and exploring upscale La Jolla Village.

The USD English Camp also offers an optional one-week Southwest Trip that includes stops at Disneyland, Universal Studios, Hollywood, Santa Monica, Venice Beach, and Rodeo Drive before an extended stay in Las Vegas and at the Grand Canyon.
