Since English is serving as an international language right now, you are not alone in studying it. But you do have a lot of choices as to how and where to study – your own country, England, Ireland, Malta, the U.S. And within the U.S., too many cities and schools to count. So, why come to EC San Francisco?
Well, of course there is the high level of training and experience of our teaching staff – Master’s degrees, California Teaching Credentials, teaching experience in the U.S. and in dozens of countries abroad. And (although you don’t see it happen), there is the close collaboration between teachers [which often doesn’t happen in language schools], so that good ideas are shared, and important information about students is passed on from one teacher to another.
We also recently took a huge technological step forward, installing interactive whiteboards that enable both teachers and students to use video, student created presentations, scanned documents and imported Word documents and Powerpoint, along with traditional “blackboard” input. The result is a more dynamic and interactive use of resources, that brings English instruction into the electronically connected 21st century.
But soon, you’ll be able to enjoy these benefits at any EC English center. So why San Francisco?
Well, San Francisco is an internationally famous tourist destination, considered to be one of the top cities in the U.S. Few American cities can boast such a beautiful environment. We have a unique historical mode of transportation (the cable cars). The Golden Gate Bridge is a touristic mainstay.
In addition, San Francisco is at the hub of journeys short and long that will bring you to some of the most beautiful spots on the planet. Lake Tahoe and Yosemite. Death Valley. Mount Lassen Volcanic National Park. Point Reyes to the north, and Big Sur to the south.
Of course, San Francisco also boasts the cultural opportunities you expect from a major city – Symphony, Ballet, Opera, Theater – a vibrant club scene – a huge variety of restaurants. One of the largest municipal parks in the U.S. (Golden Gate Park). Four major museums, and a host of smaller, more specialized ones. A zoo. A world-renowned natural science center. Two nearby amusement parks. Two world-famous universities (also nearby). San Francisco is worth a long look, and EC San Francisco is a great place to study English – a world-class school in a world-class city.
