For 24 years, ALPS has been helping students meet their English education goals. We typically have between 30 and 90 students. Our size permits us to focus on having small classes (Maximum 8 students in a class) with lots of teacher contact. We also offer private lessons as part of our courses, and this 1:1 ratio is great for targeted language improvement. Every session, we offer 3 activities: 2 in-city trips, and 1 all-day trip, usually outside the city. ALPS students come from all over the world, and students learn in an English-only environment.
Seattle is a beautiful city with many learning opportunities and tourist activities. Some large companies like Amazon.com got their start in or around Seattle. Visit the original Starbucks or tour the Microsoft campus or a Boeing factory! Visit Pike Place Market, one of the oldest open farmer’s markets in the US! Seattle is known as the Evergreen City because there are green trees all year. With the beautiful views of 2 mountain ranges and the water, Seattle is a lovely place to live.
