Ich kann die Schule fuer Sprachschueler bis Niveau B2 empfehlen. Fuer fortgeschrittene Sprachschueler (wie mich) kann ich die Schule nur bedingt empfehlen, da auch im fortgeschrittensten Kurs viele Schueler mit geringerem Sprachniveau waren. Ausserdem war der Intensivkurs fuer mich nicht zufriedenstellend, da hier verschiedene Level gemischt wurden. Das daraus resultierende Niveau war fuer mich leider zu gering und ich bin mir sicher, dass ich mit autonomen Lernen groessere Fortschritte gemacht haette. Alle Lehrkraefte warten unglaublich nett, freundlich und persoenlich. Die atmosphaere in der Schule war perfekt.

« Ja, ich habe Fortschritte erzielt, insbesondere in den Bereichen: Verstehen und Ausdrucksweise beim Sprechen. Allerdings glaube ich, dass ich bei einem Betriebspraktikum oder aehnlichem die gleichen Fortschritte erzielt haette. »

Tutto lo staff della scuola è gentile e fantastico.Ti fanno sentire a tuo agio sin dal primo giorno. Al front desk sono sempre pronti ad aiutarti.Gli insegnati svolgono il lavoro con passione, il che rende più facile apprendere e seguire le lezioni in modo veramente piacevole. Emma e suo figlio Jack sono delle persone straordinarie. Questa host family è veramente consigliata.Facilmente raggiungibile dalla città sia a piedi che con il bus.Famiglia ideale per le stundentesse che hanno piacere di condividere con molte altre ragazze (fino a 6/7) un'esperienza unica e indimenticabile.

Embassy English, San Diego
Duration: 20 weeks

When I was a child I was lazy about speaking English. But to be here and speak English in America is amazing. You must learn English for the world, to find a job, to travel all over…someone, anywhere and everywhere will be able to understand you. San Diego is an amazing city on the coast. The downtown is wonderful. People feel free here. The air from the sea lets you feel free and you don’t want to sleep. After school I walk back to my residence and I meet people from everywhere. I've learned a lot about the culture of other places.

Duration: 5 weeks

I took the Standard English courses and Business English at Embassy English. The courses are rather helpful and productive. The teachers are full of energy and optimism. The location of the school is great! The view is breath-taking and the building is right in the center of Downtown. I highly recommend that students go out and meet American people in the shopping centers, on the beach, in Balboa Park – Americans are very open people and they will be happy to be your friends.

Embassy English, San Diego
Duration: 8 weeks

San Diego is amazing! Everything was absolutely great! The city, the people, the school… My English got much better, the school organization is perfect and teachers are lovely and helpful. The school, Embassy English, is perfectly located in San Diego Downtown, so you can easily walk to Trolley Station, go shopping or reach the famous area of Gaslamp. And how nice is to go to the beach with the other students after school and enjoy the sunset?! Thank you so much to your team for the amazing organization. I can only recommend ESL Education! And now, I’ll patiently wait for my Cambridge certificate.

There certainly isn’t a shortage of things to do in beautiful San Diego with its miles of southern California beaches, popular Mission Bay, and easy access to Mexico for those adventure seekers. The extensive activity program offers conversation clubs, ping pong tournaments, as well as trips to the world famous San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, and whale watching trips. Students are encouraged to go on activities in the evenings so they can enjoy friendships in an international atmosphere. However, no trip to this part of the USA is complete without the weekend trip offerings to the bright lights of Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon (one of the 7 wonders of the world), and Los Angeles for those looking to experience Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and seeing their favorite celebrity.
