The glamour of Los Angeles and California living come together at Loyola Marymount University (LMU), which sits on a hill looking over the LA skyline and the Pacific Ocean. CISL’s LMU Summer English Program offers students the chance to study at Loyola Marymount for two, three, or four weeks and also includes an option for an additional one-week California Coast Trip.

With the LMU Summer English Program, students take part in CISL’s traditionally small classroom (an average of just 8 students per instructor!) and quickly improve their speaking and comprehension skills through practices focusing on fluency, comprehension, and communication confidence. Classes are all held on LMU’s expansive campus in classrooms with state-of-the-art facilities. Afternoons are dedicated to cultural workshops and CISL activities such as exploring nearby Santa Monica, shopping in Los Angeles, or attending LA museums. On the weekends, students enjoy longer excursions to other Southern California locations such as Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive, Venice Beach, and Six Flags Magic Mountain Amusement Park.

The optional one-week California Coast Trip allows students to see more of beautiful California. As they travel alongside the Pacific Ocean, students taken in the California Coast from north to south, exploring San Francisco, Carmel, Monterey, and Santa Barbara before completing their journey in Los Angeles.
