Study English in California

Converse International School of Languages offers professional English classes in two California locations: sunny San Diego, with miles of coastline and stunning beaches, and San Francisco, the most international and culturally diverse city in the U.S.

California’s stunning coastlines, beautiful weather, and famous cities beckon those looking for the laidback California lifestyle, but The Golden State offers even more than picture-perfect sunsets and long days on the beach. California’s world class cuisine, culturally rich cities, and breathtaking natural parks make it the perfect area for any foodie, museum and music lover, or outdoors fanatic. What is life like as an international student in California? Always exciting!

After school, check out California’s exciting fusion cuisine in neighborhoods like San Diego’s Little Italy or San Francisco’s Mission District, stroll each city’s beautiful parks and embarcaderos, or bike along the SD beaches or over the Golden Gate Bridge. In the evening, check out some live music at a local concert venue, grab dinner at a trendy new restaurant, or sip a cocktail and enjoy the beautiful city skylines at sunset.

On weekends, explore the vineyards of the world-famous Napa Valley, ski or snowboard in Lake Tahoe (former host of the Winter Olympics!), become star struck and appease your inner shopaholic in Los Angeles, hike through gorgeous Yosemite, or discover the charming seaside cities of Southern California. With the waves of the Pacific Coast to the west, the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the east, and some of the most iconic cities in the world in between, we are left asking ourselves, “What isn’t there to do in California?”
