CLA Los Angeles is excited to announce that classes starting on the 18th of September will be held in our new Los Angeles location (right down the street from our current location at 8632 S. Sepulveda Blvd., #205, Los Angeles, CA 90045). Everyone here is really excited to make this new Academy the very best it can possibly be! Let me walk you through some of my thoughts on why I am particularly excited.

The new CLA will be larger than our current academy with increased numbers of classrooms and more space. This is great for our students and faculty allowing more classroom options to better tailor our curriculum to our students’ needs, especially during our peak season in the winter and summer. We will also be working on upgrading our classrooms to provide better digital interaction with the materials we use to teach. This, in turn, will allow a better and more seamless integration of technology for our students and teachers to use. But that’s not all! Each room, including the student lounge, will have a full wall white board for teachers and students to use for learning, games or just drawing some awesome pictures!

Not only will we have more space to host our amazing students and faculty, the new location offers an amazing array of shops, restaurants, and stores all within walking distance. Examples include more than a dozen places to eat including the famous, In-N-Out, several coffee places, two different supermarkets, a supply store, a bank, a department store, a pharmacy and plenty more all within a short walk. There’s absolutely something for everyone. Personally, I’m really excited to have a Trader Joe’s I can walk over to and pick up some groceries or healthy food options.

Alissa Olgun, Co-Founder and COO of CLA, about the move: “7 years ago, CLA started in the business center of our apartment complex as a small, evening program. It is amazing to see how it has quickly grown from that little conference room to an official office, to a 5 classroom office, to this new 8 classroom space! It is wonderful and exciting to see how far CLA has come in such a short period of time!”

At CLA, we have a variety of programs, from Part-time to full-time programs, focused on Business English, Exam Preparation, we have a course for everyone, so contact us at to find out more.

Again, we’re so excited to be moving into our beautiful new space and we hope to see you there!
