“San Francisco has only one drawback – ’tis hard to leave”, said Rudyard Kipling once upon a time. Luckily for you, when you study English at EC San Francisco you get to learn exactly what he means. The school is reopening on March 1st and more ready than ever to get students back to learning English. Your safety is in mind at every step and we will do everything we can to ensure you have an unforgettable experience. So, let’s jump to it. Let’s see what makes San Francisco so very moreish!
Study on a Movie Set!
Ok, so not literally on a movie set, but did you know that San Francisco has been the location for lots of movies throughout the decades? Those streets have been walked by countless stars, used to frame scenes, and provided an atmospheric backdrop for all sorts of films, from small independent productions to Oscar winners. Visually, San Francisco is such a treat that it’s hard for creatives to resist. Firm family favourite Mrs Doubtfire was shot here, as was the classic 1968 move Bullitt. Bullitt’s most memorable scene is a car chase up and down the hills of the city, all filmed without special effects.
Rolling Hills and Street Cars…
To continue from the previous point, those hills of San Francisco are world-famous. Due to the city’s positioning on two fault lines – San Andreas and Hayward – the seismic activity over many years helped to shaped them as you see them today. There are so many, in fact, that it’s the second hilliest city in the world! Cable cars were invented in the city to climb these hills and they’re still in use today. You can ride from Downtown to Fisherman’s Wharf and take in the sights at ease, while taking advantage of a significant piece of local history, and don’t forget to take photos along the way. It’s a must-do!
What About the Sourdough Bread?!
If there’s one social media trend we all remember from 2020, it’s that people around the world became obsessed with learning to make sourdough bread. How fitting then that you could be learning English in the home of sourdough in 2021! Whether you’re a pro at baking it yourself or not, you absolutely need to try the local produce. You can have your choice of bakers at any local market and for an added treat, hot chowder served in a sourdough bowl – yes, the bread IS the bowl and it’s entirely edible! You’d have to be crazy to miss that one.
