Since its creation in 2008, AELS has made every effort to find the most effective educational methods with the goal of teaching local American English. As a result of these efforts, AELS has developed an educational system that incorporates its own educational philosophy. The differentiated education system that AELS offers is based on effective and diverse educational content developed in-house with careful supervision of academic achievement, immediate academic performance feedback, in-depth local culture/life experience activities, quality education, and teaching management to maintain passionate and friendly class sessions. The goal is to maximize the development of practical conversational English skills in a short period of time by way of a small number of class members taught by 100% native speakers. AELS has refrained from the existing language school system in order to improve the students' effective conversational skills. We are also centered on maintaining an average of 5 students in each class. This is because conversation-oriented classes that require active participation and provide immediate feedback from English teachers can maximize learning efficiency. In addition, the affordable tuition at AELS provides a reasonable and economical choice for students, as compared to other academic institutions operating classes of medium and large sizes. AELS has a proven ESL program that has earned accreditation from the Commission on English Language Accreditation (CEA), a professional certification agency for English education in the United States. Brea is a great place to study as well as to experience the warm, mild climate and the lifestyle of Southern California. You can enjoy the beautiful, high-income neighborhoods and the crime-free nature of the city. There are also a variety of local attractions, including Disneyland and the nearby city of Los Angeles. For valuable, efficient, and exciting US language training, AELS will be the best option. We are ready to help you with all aspects of your English language program, from the language school application and F-1 visa acquisition to navigating local life. If you have any plans to study English now or in the future, please do not hesitate to contact us. --- Are you wondering why AELS requires you to sign up for 12 weeks? We have good reasons for this. Through our research and reflection on our program, we learned that students who are only in class together for a month tend to spend a good portion of the first and second week being shy and hesitant to speak or participate in class. They are still getting used to each other halfway through the month, which means they are only making real progress for approximately 2 weeks before they are off to a new class group and new students with whom to repeat the process. We wanted to make this getting-to-know-you process faster and more meaningful. To speed the process up, we limit our classes to a maximum of 8 students per class. Everyone will get used to talking and participating in class much more quickly and comfortably. In addition, we decided to extend the courses to take place over 12 weeks, instead of breaking them down into three 4-week courses. While students in month-long classes may take 2 weeks acclimating and 2 weeks making real progress each month, students in our quarterly courses will take only about 1-week acclimating and will make 11 weeks of real progress. ---Starting Dates: 1st Monday of Every Month Students may start classes on the 1st Monday of any month; however, to officially earn credit towards completion of a level, a student must enroll in the entire quarter (12 weeks). ---Ending Dates: March, June, September, December Regardless of the number of months that students register, their end date must coincide with the quarter schedule. Our ESL program’s end dates are in March, June, September, and December. Students who want to apply for 3 months but do not begin the course on the first start date will need to enroll and finish the following quarter as well. For example, students who want to apply for 3 months, but begin the course in February of the 1st quarter, will need to enroll and finish the 2nd quarter as well. ***CLASSES MUST BE BOOKED FOR 12 WEEKS MINIMUM***

Our job as ESL educators goes far beyond simply teaching English. Its one thing to teach a student English, but it is a completely different thing to teach them the experience of English. With a forward-thinking attitude, we are constantly striving to be at the forefront of the latest technology and learning methodologies in the industry. Our curriculum is structured on a blended learning model, one that is heavily e-based and fully corpora informed. In so doing, we are able to flip our classrooms, allowing our students to dictate their own education and interact with the language as they learn it. We strongly believe in providing an authentic education, one that simulates English in action, as it exists today. It is our goal as an institution to ensure that, upon completing our program, our students have reached levels of proficiency that meet or exceed CERF standards. More importantly, however, it is our goal to endow them with capability to practically apply those skills in future pursuits, whatever they may be.
