Studying English at ALC has made the difference in my English confidence. I hope to apply all the skills I’ve learned at ALC in my future professional life. Also, I’ve been happy with ALC’s location. It’s a safe area with a student environment and great services such as transportation, groceries, theatres, restaurants, library, and a medical center.
Sofia Carneiro Mosquera, Spain, AIEP and IECP

I would recommend UCLA Extension to English learners because I believe ALC staff delivers on its promises: we’ve been taken care of by the enrollment team, the front desk team, the management team, and our teachers. My grammar has developed tremendously; we’re provided with good text books and our teachers were dedicated to helping us learn and improve.

As a film-director and a screenwriter, I need to be precise in my communication; with the IECP program I have improved my English and am learning to communicate the subtleties that guide my job. Now I can put in my scripts more complex ideas, and I am learning the tools which help me communicate with the actors.

This course has been recommended to me and now I recommend it to others, because the American Language Center has good teachers, great methods of teaching, and a convenient study schedule.
Rafael Botello, Venezuela, AIEP

I have been studying at the American Language Center for a year, getting high marks and reaching the advanced level. As a result, I had no difficulty getting accepted into a master’s degree program at an American university. I really appreciate all the teachers and staff at UCLA Extension for teaching me and for giving me this opportunity.
Nastaran Khodadani, Iran, AIEP


I chose UCLA for my English course because UCLA has great reputation around the world. UCLA standards maintained by the teachers at ALC compelled me to do my very best and helped me to improve my English skills very rapidly. Language is the basis of all learning; now that I’ve become more confident in my English language skills, I believe that I will improve tremendously in many subject areas. I believe that UCLA has very strong principles, and truly cares about helping their students learn.
Irina Velitskaya, Russia, AIEP



The reason I chose ALC for my English course is because I have asked many people for the best and most intensive English language program, and the answer that always cam up was UCLA Extension. ALC helped me improve my English a lot. I really did not expect this level professional teaching and dedication in ensuring that the students fully understand every single information given to them. I am going to study mechanical engineering as an undergraduate, and the intensive English Program is more than perfect for preparing me towards that. 

Sulaiman AlAli, Kuwait, AIEP

I studied at ALC 27 years ago because my objective was to study Public Relations and Communications at UCLA Extension. I completed my Public Relations studies with a Certificate in 1989. ALC was- and still is- a premium English school for people who want to continue their studies on a profound and professional level.
