What our students say about us
I met people from all different countries and cultures and we always have interesting discussions in the class. It's fun!
I recommend other students to come to Advance English Academy, you will have support and they will treat you well. My advice is to try to be dedicated to things you learn, and you will achieve your goals.
Our schools are located in the heart of downtown San Francisco and Berkeley.

Good times and social revolutions tend to start here, from manic gold rushes to blissful hippie ‘be-ins’. If there’s a skateboard move yet to be busted, a technology still unimagined, a poem left unspoken or a green scheme untested, chances are it’s about to happen in San Francisco. Grab your coat and a handful of glitter, and enter a wonderland of fog and fabulousness.

Beyond being an attractive city, a blend of yuppie, hippie, and students exists side by side with great Asia-Pacific restaurants, Latin American groceries, high-end organic food halls, and the misty green campus of the University of California, Berkeley. This vibrant and active city will make you feel on the front end of the environmental and political issues that have defined the nation.
AEA offers multiple levels of ESL (English as a Second Language) classes and Business English classes. We have a flexible schedule. You can attend classes in the early mornings, late afternoons, and in the evenings.
Our Engaging and Interactive Curriculum is designed to help students learn English more effectively.
We believe by helping the people in the city, we can help our students connect with where they study and live. AEA offers optional volunteer activities for students inspired to help our surrounding community and environment, such as volunteering at the beautify Golden Gate Park, helping out at local soup kitchens, etc.
U.S. Culture & Exploration
We love to celebrate the holidays, with a Thanksgiving Feast, a Halloween Costume Party, a Christmas Gift Exchange, and a New Year's Bash! We also love to explore! AEA leads students on field trips all over the San Francisco area, including the Golden Gate Bridge and Fisherman’s Wharf. We also offer optional excursions to places such as Lake Tahoe for skiing and Yosemite National Park for hiking!
Advance English Academy is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training (ACCET).
