Student Testimonial

I have been studying the Cambridge course and will go back home to start working at a bank. The best part about learning English at EC San Diego is the close distance to the beach, for doing homework of course! I also liked the great destinations to go to over the weekend like Los Angeles and San Francisco. I was excited to learn surfing and also go skydiving. A tip I would give to new students is to enjoy the lovely San Diego weather as much as you can. It’s great!

Teacher Testimonial

I'm a California girl who loves to wander, but after roaming the earth, I'm always glad to come back to San Diego! When I'm not teaching I'm likely in the ocean, hanging out with my cat, or finding new ways to make my students love learning English. I attended UCSD and have taught children and adults of all levels of English. I have worked with students from over 25 countries, and have loved every minute of it!

Learning tips: Have a positive attitude! You will make mistakes, that's inevitable. So just embrace it and realize that's what school is for - we will help you become confident in your abilities. The more you put into class, the more you will get out of it. Ask questions, participate, and speak English during your whole stay in San Diego!

My classes are like me! Interesting, dynamic, and a little bit crazy. I get bored easily, so I want to make sure you keep your enthusiasm high and attention focused. We activate the language you learn through role plays, interactive vocabulary quizzes, scavenger hunts and more. You'll remember the language you use far longer than the language you hear!
