Located steps from the popular Pacific Beach in Southern California, our partner school offers a winning combination: high quality English classes in a relaxed atmosphere. This means students can not only enjoy the beach and the many cafés and restaurants that line it, but also benefit from excellent language programmes specifically designed for international students. What’s more, the Mission Bay beaches are just a few hundred meters away, offering participants access to two very popular hotspots! The school building is entirely air-conditioned and includes 8 bright classrooms, a student lounge, a few computers and free Wi-Fi. Classes are made up of 7 students on average (max. 12) so teachers may devote enough time to each student without slowing down the teaching pace.

L'atmosfera è piacevole e spensierata perché nonostante vogliano farti imparare bene la lingua inglese il loro primo obiettivo sembra quello di farti divertire. Le indicazioni di livello che ti danno loro però non sono molto attendibili soprattutto comparate al livello degli esami di Cambridge.

Testimonials
María José García Giménez
María José García Giménez

Last summer, I went to San Diego for a language stay and I had the chance to meet people from all over the world. I travelled and had fun like never before. I practised my English skills and improved my level; when I came back to Spain, my English was much better! San Diego is just perfect. It was the best summer of my life and the only thing I want is to live it all over again!

Host family
This option is always a great bet: immersed in the daily life of a local family, you'll strengthen your English skills in a more in-depth manner and pick up the real day-to-day language. Plus, you'll enjoy authentic insight into American culture. Staying in a single or twin room (with a student of the same sex), you will receive half-board. Families live within 30-45 minutes (max. 60 minutes) of the school and all students will be able to get to school using public transport.

Pacific Beach standard shared apartment (from 18 years)
A 10-minute bus ride or a 25-minute walk from the school, you can share an apartment with other international students. You'll stay in a single or twin room (with another student of the same sex) complete with an ensuite bathroom. All apartments include a fully fitted kitchen with a dishwasher, a living room, a balcony, TV, air conditioning and free Wi-Fi. Bed linen and bath towels are available and changed weekly; however, it's recommended to bring your own beach towel. The apartments are cleaned weekly. Other facilities include an outdoor swimming pool, a BBQ area, a fitness centre, tennis courts and basketball courts.

Pacific Beach Superior shared apartment (from 18 years)
This modern, resort-style apartment complex is located in the heart of Pacific Beach – a postcard-perfect setting with palm trees, endless blue skies, roaring waves and surf vibes!
At only a 25-minute walk to the language school, this accommodation offers all the amenities you could dream of. Each apartment has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, a living room and a balcony, as well as free WiFi and a Smart TV. Common areas in the building include a swimming pool, a BBQ area, a gym, tennis courts and more… California dreamin’ indeed!

The school already has a foot in the ocean, so no doubt you will spend most of your time in the water too! But San Diego and its area offer a multitude of other fascinating activities. Visit Balboa Park, the heart of the local cultural scene, with its three museums, historical gardens and exact replica of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. Also explore the Old Town district, known as the cradle of California, and its 17 documented historical sites. The school will organise activities to allow you to get to know the other students from throughout the world. Every Tuesday, the programme is free, with activities including beach sports and trips in the area. From Wednesday to Friday, excursions (Los Angeles, Six Flags Amusement Park, San Diego Zoo, etc.) and sports activities (surfing, kayaking, etc.) are offered at a charge, as are weekend trips to Las Vegas or San Francisco. If you want to discover some must-see attractions on your own, the Grand Canyon, Disneyland and Universal Studios are ideal for a daytrip with friends!
