Golden Rules of the English Language

  Inspired by the Golden Gate Bridge, here are 10 simple rules to the English Sentence: 1 – A sentence is a group of words that has a complete thought, meaning or idea. 2 – Every English sentence starts with a Subject followed by a Verb. 3 –  Every English sentence must have a verb. 4 – A Subject tells who or what the sentence is about. 5 – The Verb is the action word that tells what someone or something does. 6 – Add -s to most verbs to tell about one person, place or a thing. e.g One bird stops. 7 – The words (am, is, are) are verbs called (to-be) They tell about now. e.g. I am six. Kip is little 8 – Use AM to tell about yourself. Use IS to tell about one person, thing, place. Use ARE to tell about more than one. 9 – A noun names a person, animal, place or a thing. 10 – A sentence always starts with a capital letter and ends with an ending mark.

Abigail showing off her engagement ring!

Abigail from Brazil said “YES!”

      There’s no motivation stronger than the motivation of Love! Abigail’s first visit to San Francisco was back in August, when she and her fiance Tristan decided to meet face to face after a long long-distance-relationship. He invited her to the best city by the bay for a week. When she learned that she loved him so much, she decided to stay in SF, killing two birds with one stone; be with him & take English courses in San Francisco  Abigail first met Tristan on Social Media. He fell in love with her pictures and the awesome personality she displayed. The only barrier that they could overcome (because love conquers all) is language! He speaks a bit of Spanish, she speaks a bit of Spanish, she had limited English, and with the language of Love they managed. On March 9, in Lake Tahoe, where they were having a mini-vacation, he popped the question, and she said “YES!”. It was magical, it was snowy, and she came back flaunting that blue diamond!  We wish them a happy life! We can’t wait for the big day!  

Only the Warriors jersey is cooler than our graduation. gown!

Abdullah from Saudi Arabia “I scored 6.5”

Last Friday on March 15, we said goodbye to one of our long term students, Abdullah from Saudi Arabia. Abdullah comes from a small town in the southern region of the country. He was granted a full scholarship from his country to continue his education in United States. That alone tells you so much about him! He is a hardworking student; the kind of students we like at our EC San Francisco. We helped him to finally achieve the first step into college life! Starting as a lower-level student, we are also proud to announce to the world that he scored 6.5 on his IELTS test. A score that granted him admission in a university in South Carolina! He’s starting this summer, and we are happy to send him off to his mini-vacation before the semester kicks off! Here’s what Abdullah said about his experience when we asked him about it. “I first came to San Francisco with limited English. I enrolled with the best teachers and in a span of 24 weeks, I moved up to Advanced. My experience here, not only made me a better English speaker, but it also helped me grow as a person and an academic student. I scored 6.5 in my IELTS and was granted admission to the State University in South Carolina” We will miss Abdullah, and we can’t wait to graduate more hardworking students who are eager to enroll in our English courses in San Francisco
