I enjoy drama and action movies, and I’ve appreciated Los Angeles even more since seeing where these films have been made! I probably enjoy the Back to the Future series and Heat the most (the latter is a great movie from the 90s that has tons of filming locations in Los Angeles.)
I recommend you visit the Santa Monica Pier, Griffith Park and the Observatory, and take a drive around the Palos Verdes Peninsula! Also make sure to get some lunch at the Grand Central Market downtown. If you have a favorite movie that was filmed in Los Angeles, see if you can find the filming location. There are a lot!
I like working as an interpreter and translator when I can dictate my own schedule, and my ideal situation is where I can mix work by myself and work interacting with other people, which is one of the reasons I enjoy teaching JVTA classes!
There is no better way to improve your foreign language skills than to live in a country and use the language on a daily basis. Not only can you improve your English by being in Los Angeles, but you can also enjoy a city with one of the best climates and world-famous sites to see!
