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. 10) so teachers may devote enough time to each student without slowing down the teaching pace.

School highlights
« La situation entre l'école et le logement 20min à pied et 10 à vélo un vrai bonheur quand on sait que les transports publique en Amérique ne sont pas terrible. Pour le coup le système de bus dans le quartier fonctionnait plutôt bien et il y avait une ligne qui passait entre mon logement et l'école. Un vrai plus. »
Top tips
« Je conseils vivement de participer aux activités que propose les écoles. Je pense que cela m'aurait permis d'être plus en contact avec les gens et de mieux profiter de la ville. En outre, je conseille vivement de sortir de San Diego et partir à l'aventure les week-end. Il est facile de profiter de San Diego la semaine qui plus est avec les activités de l'école alors les week-end, PARTEZ ! Il y a beaucoup d'autres villes à visiter : Anaheim, Los Angels, Malibu, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Phoenix etc.. Et si vous en avez l'occasion partez en road trip et passer le week-end dans les Parcs Nationaux. Il y en a beaucoup est ils valent vraiment la peine d'être visité. Plus que les villes à mon sens. N'ayez pas peur de sortir de votre zone de comfort et partez à l'aventure. Il y a tant à découvrir sur la côte ouest ! »

Do you think you've made progress?
« Ja ich denke, dass ich in der Schule einiges gelernt habe, jedoch ist es in der Freizeit schwierig einen Fortschritt zu machen wenn die meisten Schüler aus der Schweiz oder aus Deutschland sind. Ich hatte das Glück dass meine Mitbewohner nicht Deutsch sprachen und ich doch einiges mit ihnen unternommen habe, so machte ich doch auch in der Freizeit einige Fortschritte. »
School highlights
« Die Schule lag direkt am Strand und hatte viele Restaurants in der Nähe, so war man nach dem Unterricht immer schnell mit seinen Mitschülern am Strand. Auch dass die Klassen sehr klein gehalten wurden fand ich positiv, so wurde auch jeden Rücksicht genommen. »

San Diego y en concreto Pacific Beach es una zona ideal para vivir, tranquila y en la playa pero con muchas opciones de ocio. El apartamento está muy bien pero tiene muchos insectos. El día que llegamos no habían limpiado el baño, tenía cosas de inquilinos anteriores. La escuela podría promover más actividades de bienvenida con los nuevos estudiantes

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.

A 10-minute bus ride or a 25-minute walk from the school, you can share an apartment with other international students.

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!
