Learn English online with CEL

The College of English Language (CEL) has had great student success with English courses at our California schools. However, we understand that traveling to California and undertaking an immersive English course may not be possible to some. Because of this, CEL is proud to introduce an online English course component available to anyone worldwide. All you need is a computer and access to the internet to benefit from the CEL online courses. Lessons are flexible and easily manageable to fit in your personal schedule. Since expenses such as accommodation and transporatation play no role, lessons packages are offered at an affordable rate (see table below). No matter what your goals are, we are here to teach you. Whether it is for self-improvement or a desire to have an edge in the job market, our lessons will help you learn, guaranteed!

Packages vary in rates and number of lessons, so the more lessons you purchase, the cheaper the rate per lesson. You will then be able to log into our web portal and connect with your teacher for your private online lesson.

Are online English courses right for me?

First-Time CEL Students:

If it’s your first time taking courses with CEL, online courses offer many advantages to you. Taking online courses may not be as immersive as attending one of our schools in California, however it is still beneficial. It is a great way to ease into the language for first-time learners. As mentioned above, students will be connected with experienced and native speaking teachers who are able to focus on your weaknesses and give suggestions on how to improve in real time. Our online courses will also fit and accommodate your schedule, so you can decide when to schedule your lessons. We also recommend taking some online courses prior to attending an immersive program at one of our schools. These courses will be most beneficial in acclimating students to the English language prior to arrival and allow you to hit the ground running.

At a glance:

  • Great for first time course takers to break into the language
  • Teachers can focus on weaknesses and help you improve
  • You can schedule lessons when it is most convenient for YOU
  • Recommended for students prior to attending a program at our California schools
  • Courses help with acclimation to the language

Former Students of CEL:

Practice makes perfect, and if you don’t use it, you lose it. If you have taken courses with us before at our California locations, you may want to take advantage of our online courses. They are beneficial and integral to maintaining the skills you’ve acquired from your courses in San Diego or Los Angeles. This may also allow an opportunity to reconnect with a teacher you enjoyed learning with and continue learning with them. Online courses are of lower intensity in comparison to the classes you have attended at CEL, making it a more relaxed and engaging to learn.

At a glance:

  • Continue practicing English with CEL 
  • Possibly reconnect with teachers you’ve enjoyed
  • Lower intensity than previous immersive program
  • Private and personalized lessons
