In the famous ‘Tales of the City’ fictional series, the characters have lots of interesting stories to share from the colourful and diverse neighbourhoods that exist. From the Victorian houses in the Haight-Ashbury neighbourhood to the vibrant Latino culture in the Mission district, San Francisco is a city of many areas, each with its own distinct character. The city has undergone significant gentrification since the time of the books, but fans of the series will get a kick out of searching for Mrs Madrigal’s house and retracing their favourite character’s steps.
One of the main advantages of studying at EC San Francisco English Language School is the location.

The city’s packed social calendar means you can pick different activities every day of the week from music and food festivals, to cultural events as well as sports. EC San Francisco often gets a group together to watch a local sports team – it’s an affordable and fun way to connect with the local community. Check out the activities calendar at the school and see what’s planned.
Hiking, biking, and picnicking are all great ways to enjoy the outdoors without spending a lot of money and you get to see a different side of the city too and one of the best ways to spend your free time? Helping others of course! Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, gain new skills, and make a positive impact in the community you are temporarily calling home. Look for opportunities with local non-profits and community organisations or ask the team at the school for their suggestions.
