Student Testimonial

It was a wonderful experience to live in San Francisco over the last three months- definitely unforgettable. I liked so much about EC. The level of education is high and the teachers are good. They’ve really helped me improve my English. Besides the teachers, there are also other staff members who are helpful (especially Amanda!). I’m sure I will never forget the wonderful friendships I made with people from different countries. I’ll really miss everyone! I would certainly recommend EC San Francisco to a friend. The time I spent in this city will add much to my life.

Teacher Testimonial

My name is Anthony Jones. I was born in Central California, went to college in Los Angeles and lived in New York for five years before I moved to San Francisco.

I've been a teacher for over five years. I've taught twelve year olds, thirteen year olds, high school students and adults. I'm also a professional fiction writer.

Don't be afraid to make mistakes! The more you go out there and try to speak English, the more you'll learn. My classes are very relaxed. I believe that students speak their best English when they're calm.

My favourite spot in San Francisco is Golden Gate Park... but only when it's sunny!
