English Language TESOL Program
San Diego, California USA



School Introduction

IES Hillcrest is a private language school located close to downtown San Diego in sunny California. We provide quality education for English learners (ESL) and English teachers (TESOL) from overseas and the local community. We want to create a comfortable atmosphere that allows students to overcome their anxieties about language learning. Our hope is to facilitate authentic language learning which is enforced by the experience of living in the United States.

ESL Program Introduction

For English learners, our Intensive English Program helps students develop the language skills they need to succeed in their university studies, careers, and social interactions. Our approach to education focuses on active learning. Students are not passive observers in lectures but active participants in discussion and problem solving. Our small classes, between six to ten students, offer plenty of interaction with experienced teachers as well as classmates from around the world.
