San Francisco has long been a popular destination for learning English in the U.S. The combination of a year-round mild climate, fantastic attractions, shops and restaurants, bars and nightlife, and some of the most beautiful scenery in the United States guarantees a constant flow of visitors to this tranquil and exclusive, diverse and especially welcoming city.
San Francisco, with its excellent amenities for sports, entertainment, and art is the ideal environment in which to get to know American culture and to study English. On the other side of San Francisco Bay is the world-famous University of California Berkeley, which offers San Francisco a high academic standard and student flair.
Spectacular beaches surround the city and you can sail and surf all year round. San Francisco has more restaurants than any other city in the U.S. and is home to many theatres, music and dance schools, and an extensive selection of museums. You also have the option to explore the bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the area of the city with Berkeley, Napa Valley, and Caramel.
The extremely environmentally aware city puts its emphasis on the high quality of life. There are 14 small islands in the bay, including Alcatraz, which are very nicely located between the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge.
San Francisco truly is the alternative choice as a destination for learning English abroad. Stunning, thrilling, and liberal - you can find everything and everyone is invited. The only thing you have to do is bring an open mind and a desire for adventure - the rest is waiting for you!

I will keep EC in my heart forever.
I learned much more than English, I learned about life and how to deal with my weaknesses, like grammar for instance....always moving forward, one step at a time.
It is an excellent school. I studied for a month and it was wonderful. Thank you!!!
The time at the EC School was a very valuable experience for me, which goes far beyond learning a language, as especially the mixed nationalities provide insights into different cultures of the whole world. Besides the lessons, there is a daily changing and very well organized leisure program, which also takes place on weekends. The accommodation, which is very cheap, was above the average standard of San Francisco.
An amazing place with amazing people, everything is perfect there, from the staff to the activities. You'll learn a lot and improve your English for sure.
I was particularly happy with the skilled teachers, the helpful staff and the friendly atmosphere among the students at EC San Francisco. I absolutely recommend learning English at EC, especially in San Francisco!
