The St. Giles International group is one of the most important language training organisations in the United Kingdom, Canada and the USA and has lengthy experience in teaching English to executives and professionals. Our partner language school in San Francisco is ideally situated in the heart of the city, in the SoMa district, a stone’s throw away from the shopping area of Union Square. Recently refurbished, the course centre has modern and comfortable facilities, allowing you to study English in optimal conditions. St. Giles San Francisco distinguishes itself thanks to its efficient, high quality intensive courses and its small class sizes. The student café and a comfortable lounge await you during breaks – these are ideal places for meeting people who share your interests and for establishing valuable contacts. Close to the school, the Yerba Buena gardens are a real oasis of peace at the heart of the city centre – perfect for relaxing after a day of classes or a visit to the Museum of Modern Art, unless you would prefer to travel across the hills of San Francisco in one of the famousl cable cars.

Eine teure aber hervorragende Wahl. Ich würde den Service über Sie, die Schule St Giles in San Francisco also sofort wieder buchen und kann es wärmstens weiterempfehlen. Dem Lehrer Ken West gebührt zudem ein riesiges Kompliment. Er macht das exzellent. Meine Gesamtbeurteilung nach diesem Monat = Bestnote. Top! Und eben der Lehrer Ken West macht einen super Job! Top! Habe privat ein zentrales Luxus-Apartment (Global Luxury Suites on Folsom Street) gemietet. Sehr teuer aber geniale Infrastruktur und Lage. War von A-Z schlicht grandios. Herzlichen Dank!

Très bonne école. Personnel accueillant et efficace. Profs très très bien. L'école organise des sorties mais ce ne sont en fait que des visites avec un accompagnant. Ce n'est pas un guide touristique. Donc autant se débrouiller seule. Magnifique emplacement au coeur de SFO.
