alpadia summer camps testimonial elena

”At Kaplan, the teachers are very enthusiastic, kind and friendly. They never laugh at you when you make mistakes or do something wrong. During my time at Kaplan I have become more talkative. I speak with people from all around the world in English, and it turns out it’s not as difficult as I thought on my first day!”

Elena Bykova, studied at Kaplan Los Angeles Whittier summer camp
