This was my first learning experience in a language school. I am very pleased, very friendly atmosphere, good motivation and at the same time exactingness. Interesting and modern topics for discussion. High level of discipline. Possibility to try new types of activities. I took part in a volunteer program to prepare a dinner for the homeless. Excellent opportunities for practicing the language outside the school. Very open and ready to communicate people. I plan to repeat it.

Thanks to Linguatrip!

Everything was great! I enjoyed studying at school and exploring SanFrancisco after studies. I made new friends from all over the world: Germany, Colombia, Brazil, Turkey, Japan, Thailand, etc. Hosting family was supportive and always ready to help with advice. Thanks LinguaTrip for making this happen!

Everything was fine, the school is excellent. Teachers taught the material very interesting, I improved my English even I only went for 2 weeks. The accommodation was excellent, but still far from the school, since I booked the course one week before the start.

But the family was friendly with me and kind.

My experience with LinguaTrip was a life-changing experience. I could first improve tremendously my English and my professional side taking lessons with Jonathan, the best English teacher I've ever had! Then I had a wonderful trip in San Francisco, where I found a great school, ILSC, and a great homestay that both guaranteed a very good stay as well as an opportunity to further increase my level of English. She helped me tremendously improve my degree of immersion, my professional side definitely and my English! Ultimately, I was supported over the entire trip by Alexei who has always helped me with anything I needed. I would strongly recommend a Trip coupled to the experience with the LinguaTrip Staff to any student and/or young entrepreneur interested in improving the English language, enriching the Professional side and growing the business.

I decided to study at ILSC-San Francisco because it's a city with a strong culture, charming places, and with open-minded people. ILSC is helping me to communicate with other people and to understand other cultures with almost no difficulty.
