Our partner school is ideally located on Market Street in the centre of San Francisco just a short hop from Union Square. The language school is well-equipped and provides all the facilities necessary to allow you to study in the best conditions: 34 modern, spacious and bright classrooms, a language lab with a DVD library and two computer labs with quick and free internet access. The student café and a comfortable lounge await you during breaks to relax or chat with your new friends. Located close to the school, the Yerba Buena Gardens are a real oasis of peace in the heart of the city. It's perfect for relaxing after a day of class or a visit to the Museum of Modern Art, unless you’d rather discover the hills of San Francisco on one of the famous cable cars that can be caught directly opposite the school!

Une ville très agréable et des cours instructifs. Chouette ambiance parmi les élèves. Acceuil très agréable chez la famille et bonne ambiance. Beaucoup d'interaction entre les élèves ce qui progresse le niveau d'anglais. Des cours qui ne sont pas seulement consacrés au grammaire mais aussi sur le vocabulaire et la conversation. Une personne très agréable et acceuillante, j'ai été ravie de pouvoir loger chez elle pendant 2 semaines. Le logement est bien placé pour aller à l'école ou en ville. L'arrêt du bus est à 2min et on peut le prendre pour aller dans le centre et à l'école.

Testimonials

“San Francisco is a cool city because it’s so multicultural.  The advantage of studying in a language school, like St Giles, is that you get to meet people from all over the world.  St Giles well-situated in the city.  It’s the perfect location.”

St Giles, San Francisco
Duration: 4 weeks

Here, people say that San Francisco is the only town in the world to have a soul. Whether this is a legend or not, after staying here for a while, I think this is true. The city in itself is beautiful. The architecture of the buildings, the parks, the harbour, the houses, the streets, everything is of rare beauty.

You never get bored in San Francisco. The city offers plenty of interesting things to do. Museum visits, sport, bowling, cinema, shows, concerts and much more. Local food is a daily discovery because there is an impressive range of great value restaurants to try. Same thing as regards outings: there is a host of great venues which always offer good music.

If I had to describe the local atmosphere in one word, I would say “cool”. SF inhabitants are really open-minded, warm and very respectful.

At the St Giles International school, I had the chance to meet great people, whether students like me or teachers. The organisation is perfect and the classes are very interesting.

In short, I more than loved my course. This experience will stay with me forever. Many thanks to ESL for organising the trip perfectly.

I’m currently taking the Advanced Cambridge course and I feel my English is improving. My teacher is really great! I didn’t know anybody when I arrived, but I have made some amazing friends from all over the world. This experience has opened my mind. I had stereotypes of some cultures, but those have completely gone because of this experience. I am less shy than I was before I came here because I’m forced to speak and be more out-going. I have also gained a lot of independence. I’m really enjoying San Francisco and my time at St Giles.

Host family
As California is one of the most multicultural states, host families can be very diverse. Staying with one of them allows you to get an idea of the American way of life! You’ll be welcomed in a single room with a shared bathroom and can choose between half-board or breakfast only. If you want a private bathroom, you can request the "superior" option. For the “standard” option, families live 35-50 away from the school, while the families in the “suburban” category live around 50-75 minutes away. If you're travelling with a friend, a twin room is more convenient.
