Located just across the bay from San Francisco, the city of Berkeley is a buzzing student town centred around the University of California campus and is an ideal destination for anyone wanting to learn English in California. Berkeley itself is alive with cafes, shops, restaurants and nightlife, and also offers visitors easy access to all the attractions of San Francisco and the rest of the Bay Area.
LSI San Francisco/Berkeley is located in the very centre of Berkeley, close to bus and underground stations and just a few blocks from the University campus in an area full of restaurants, cafes, cinemas and bookstores. Facilities include indoor and outdoor common areas, computer room with free internet access and a student resource library - everything you need to help you develop your skills as you study English in the USA. Our language school is an official TOEIC test centre, so you can take the exam in the school. We also offer TOEFL and Cambridge Examination (CAE & FCE) preparation courses, as well as more general English programmes.
