Get Active at EC Los Angeles!

Paul Suhr, our Center Director, has some advice to share with EC students….


Students ask me all the time – “What’s the best way to improve my English?”

My answer?  “GET ACTIVE!”

Get outside, meet strangers, hang out with friends (from another country), learn something new.  Just DO something – ANYTHING!

Here are a few helpful websites that will give you some ideas of what to do with your friends, or how to make NEW friends.
