I like to be in EF San Francisco, all employees are really friendly and help you wherever they can! Even though they are trying their best it's still kind of unorganized especially when the schedules change or new students arrive. Furthermore not all classes have a really good teacher!

EF San Francisco is just a few steps away from Fisherman's wharf. So if you'd like to, you have the opportunity to check out this famous place.

In addition there is a Starbucks, Walgreens, In and out Burger and many other stores to grab some food. If you take bus 30 you are in 20 minutes in Downtown.

It's the same with the host families. Don't have to high expectations because the way to school

Is mostly around 1h 30min, I pay 140$ per month for public transport and the host family doesn't really care about you.

All in all the organization has to become better and some teachers should be stricter and start to give real exercises. But still EF is a nice platform to meet new people and friends from all over the world. Even though my host mother doesn't care about us, it's a nice house with great EF people.


My experience with this schools was really really good! The teachers are very helpful, the class are so funny and I learned many things with my exchange, not only English but the EF was the best experience of the my life. I recommend exchange for all people of the world and EF is the best school for do this!!!

This school is very good. The teachers and the EF staff help me all the time. One of the best teachers in the school is Marisol. It's my second time in this school and I like it so much. The location from the school is very close to the Fisherman's Wharf and a nice view of the Golden Gate Bridge. I think I'll come again to this school. Hella cool!


I was here for five month. Every EF Expericence was great and I’m really happy that i do that. I had a great time here and now i really miss it since I’m back in Germany. I was only a little bit unlucky with my hostfamily but the rest was great. I change to the Residence The Hub and this is a great and funny place with a great Staff. Also I have to say thank you to the best and funny Staff that was working there. The School Director from EF San Francisco is a really nice and helpful men! Thank you Steve. The Teacher on this School are all super and good. I had the opportunity to find an Intership place and it was the best Experience to work with a team that i never knew and I’m happy that i met such wonderful people.
