What we like about the school

  • Right in the centre of Downtown

EC English

The language school EC English was founded in San Francisco, USA in 2010. Situated in the heart of Downtown, just off Market Street and a short walk to Union Square. Classrooms surround a large sun-filled lounge, where students can relax and meet their classmates from all over the world. Just outside of school, students will find public transport and a myriad of shops, restaurants and cafés.
