CISL Communicator, Summer 2018  


Happy summer to our trusted and valued agents! For this edition of the CISL Communicator, we are providing our agents with some useful tips for promoting CISL programs and locations.

What makes CISL special? Small class sizes, attentive staff, and effective curriculum are some of the reasons agents love to send us their clientele. Our California locations certainly help as well! In California, there is something for everyone. Fine dining, concerts, parks, exciting cities, professional sporting events, world-renowned universities, museums, festivals . . . the list goes on. It’s cliché, but it’s true: there is always something to do in sunny California.

CISL Career English student Ines (Mexico) is currently spending time with the company Downtown Works, which offers a co-working environment for small companies and startups. Ines is completing many tasks while she learns about this company. This week, when the Career English Coordinator checked in on Ines, here is what she reported from her experience so far:

“At the beginning it was a little bit hard for me, because everything was completly [sic] new . . . However, now I am more confident with the company and I am very lucky with the staff, they are very nice and they treat me very good! This week I have been working with excel doing timetables about the people who came to Startup week. I have learned how to use mail champ [MailChimp], an email platform that it’s very useful in a lot of companies.”

We are so happy to see you excelling at your company, Ines! To learn more about the CISL Career English program and our growing list of host companies, contact CISL.


As a trusted agent, you know that CISL delivers quality instruction. But here’s a refresher course in some of the many things CISL has offered since 1972.

  • Small class size. Our “Maximum 8 Students” policy ensures students receive the one-on-one attention needed to truly improve their English skills and confidence with the language.
  • Small school size. Send your clients to a school where they will be recognized and valued. CISL students are never just another number! Our small schools in San Diego and San Francisco become a “home away from home” to international students. The CISL community is welcoming, warm, and personal.
  • Outstanding student services. Only at CISL will students receive the support needed to adjust to life in a new country. Our friendly staff members, who know their students well, are attentive to the needs of each and every CISL student.
  • Engaging activities throughout San Diego and San Francisco. Students overwhelmingly rate our activities program highly. What makes it so special? The same care and attention we put into our classroom instruction and student services is also put into our activities program. Students experience SD and SF from an insider’s perspective through CISL’s fun and safe activities, such as surfing or kayaking, trips to the San Diego ZooPadres and Giants gamesgolfing, and wine tasting.
  • Exciting trips to locations throughout California (and to Las Vegas). The great state of California is here for students to explore. With our excursions, students have the opportunity to visit Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and more.


Our beautiful San Diego and San Francisco locations are appealing to potential students, but learning is CISL’s #1 priority when it comes to international education. This is why we strictly adhere to our 8-student policy in all Adult program classes!

What are the true benefits of a small class size? Most researchers agree that smaller classes create the learning environment needed for students to improve their skills quicker. For detailed information regarding the importance of a small classroom setting, we suggest that our agents review these useful articles:
  • A recent survey of more than 700 U.S. and Canadian universities found  that student-to-faculty ratio is a critical factor of successRead the study.
  • “Does class size matter? It certainly does.” This article from UC Berkeley outlines the research about the benefits of class size and the preference–by teachers, students, and parents–for smaller classes. Read the article.
  • An informative article from the National Education Policy Center summarizes the findings of numerous studies about class size: “Overall, the literature on class size reduction is clear and positive. The ‘overwhelming majority’ of peer-reviewed papers find it an effective strategy.” Read the article.
CISL’s small classroom sizes sets us apart from other schools. When clients are choosing between schools, remind them of the value of an education with CISL.


The statistics say it all: Cambridge continues to be a leader in English proficiency testing!
  • 5.5 million assessments taken each year
  • Accepted by over 20,000 organisations worldwide
  • 2,800 exam centres in 130 countries
  • Over 50,000 preparation centres*
CISL is proud to be one of the 50,000 Cambridge preparation centres around the globe. What separates us from the rest? Our intensive preparation courses, taught in classrooms of 8 students or fewer, prepare students for all aspects of the test. CISL students receive numerous practice speaking tests, proctored by two trained CISL instructors who provide feedback and score–in detail–the student's performance. No other school in San Diego provides this level of attention or sends students to a Cambridge Exam so well prepared for the speaking exam!

Cambridge Assessment English Exams are often associated with British English; however, there are many advantages to studying for a Cambridge PET, FCE, or CAE exam in California. Learn why your clients should prepare for their Cambridge test in sunny California.

Become certified as an official Cambridge agent! Cambridge Assessment English has developed a short online training module for study abroad and language travel agents to learn the key facts needed to recommend exam preparation courses. On completion, you will receive a 'digital badge' which you can use on your website and email signature to let your clients know you have completed the training.

Sign up on the Cambridge Assessment English website:
CISL San Diego is adding PET exams (B1) at a discounted rate! Our first PET Exam was on June 7th, 2018. Later this year, we will run the PET again on July 24th and December 7th.

As an official Cambridge Testing Centre, CISL provides more than just a space to take the exam. Exam rooms are light and airy, the staff is warm and friendly, and the sound quality for the Listening Module is excellent. 

Here are some of the other benefits to taking a Cambridge Exam at CISL:
  • Before the exams, students enjoy our comfortable waiting areas
  • Prior to the Speaking Module, interlocutors help candidates relax and warm up by speaking English 
  • For small groups, lunch is provided

CISL is fortunate to be located in the Golden State of California. From the stunning landscapes ofYosemite to the sandy beaches of Santa Monica, there is so much to see and do in our state! CISL makes sure that students have access to well-organized excursions so that they can experience California at its best.

Some CISL-organized excursions include weekend trips to Las Vegas and trips to Los Angeles. CISL students can also:

  • Hike, camp, snowboard, and ski in the Lake Tahoe region 
  • Shop and explore in Los Angeles
  • Surf and sunbathe in Malibu
  • Explore nature in Muir Woods
  • Visit stunning Monterey
  • Wine taste in Napa ValleySonoma, or  Santa Barbara 
  • Experience amusement parks such as Disneyland,  Universal Studios, and Six Flags
  • Surf, shop, and enjoy Santa Cruz
  • Sunbathe, ride bikes, and ride the ferris wheel in Santa Monica
  • Camp and hike in Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Park
  • Mountain climb, hike, and camp in Yosemite

  • 3 days and 2 nights
