We offer affordable, English-language courses year-round at various times, weekdays and Saturdays in order to accommodate our students’ needs. Our classes are taught by professionally trained and experienced teachers. We offer six levels:

Beginner (Intro, Level 1 and Level 2)
Intermediate (Level 3 and Level 4)
Advanced (Level 5)

With a communication-based approach to language acquisition, students learn English grammar step by step, accompanied by writing, listening and conversational exercises. Students will also read newspaper articles, practice telephone conversations and watch films in English followed by analysis and debate.

At our Buford Highway location, students can enjoy a special feature of our English classes called intercambio, or exchange, where students periodically get to interact and converse with native English speakers enrolled in our Spanish classes, who get to practice their Spanish too.




All students must register before the first week of class for each session. Returning students currently enrolled in our ESL program will be able to pay at the main reception. Students who took our classes more than a year ago must come to our office to reassess their English Level and to make a payment for tuition and the book.
New students must register in person before the first week of a new session. See session dates below when you select the city for your class.

At registration:

1) You will take an oral/written placement test.

2) Complete this form

3) Make the tuition and book payment (prices vary by schedule).

Student must register in person before each session starts and registration policies are applicable at all our locations. A late fee of $25 will be assessed if registered the first week of a new session and no students will be accepted afterwards. Class times are subject to change, and the LAA reserves the right to cancel a class if the minimum number of students is not met. Children are not allowed in the classrooms; the LAA doesn’t provide childcare services.
