ESL 'School of the Year' award for Kings Los Angeles!

23 November, 2018

This week here at Kings Los Angeles (Hollywood) we received the best news as we approach the end of 2018 — we have been awarded ESL's English School of the Year Award!

The very prestigious ESL Language Travel Awards is an annual ceremony recognizing the academic excellence and exceptional performance of ESL's partner language schools around the world.

This year's awards gala was on 15th November, held in Sitges just outside Barcelona. In attendance were all of the language travel industry’s key representatives — all on the edge of their seats, highly anticipating the results of the night.

The awards are based on a ranking of scores combining feedback from students (more than 7400 last year) with the assessment of ESL employees in over 50 agencies, presenting an objective view of schools' performances.

There are nine categories in total, and nominations for five of the categories were announced at the ceremony.

As well as Kings Los Angeles being awarded School of the Year (English), Kings London was close behind in 4th place.

Kings Los Angeles also came #2 for Teaching Programme of the Year and #4 for School Facilities. Kings London was voted #3 for Accommodation Services, and Kings Brighton was nominated for Leisure Programme of the Year.

Kings overall was ranked #2 for School Group of the Year 2018!

The Kings Hollywood staff and faculty are ecstatic and proud to have won. We always do our best to provide students with a memorable and prestigious learning experience, so to be ranked as School of the Year is extremely reassuring and affirms our efforts.

We send a huge thank you to all students and ESL agents who have been fulfilled through our services in Los Angeles!
