"Great!"

Monica Cruz, student from Mexico

Great experience! I loved that the teachers are totally native, and being with a totally multicultural group accelerates the learning process, the location is very good because it can be quickly reached by subway, I highly recommend it, and I would take classes here again in the future.

"Great Location and Nice Staffs"

Hideto Fujita, student from Japan

Language Studies International (LSI) is located at very convenient place. Not only BART but also AC Transit buses will take students every places where they want to go after lessons. There are many restaurants near the school, so students can enjoy lunch from wide varieties of dishes , Chinese, Japanese, Turkish, Indian etc.
Another thing I should mention is nice staffs of the school. They are always friendly and kind. Though my English was not good, they tried to understand my points and did their best to help me. Their kind and soft attitude help me not to hesitate to ask them all the time.

The class operations seemed like flexible than solid to class curriculum on a web page. As far as students have questions or interests to class conversations, the teacher tried to teach English along to student's interests than curriculum. I took 4 weeks Business English course in June. The course had morning grammar classes and afternoon business English classes. The class size was seemed small than other months and i could have more chances to speak out my English. Especially afternoon class were changed to free discussion class than business English, the teacher paid attention to teach English to express student's own thought effectively. That was nice for me.

"It was a really good experience"

Pamela Flores Mora, student from Chile

It was a really good experience for me.

First, the classes and teachers were great. I had two different teachers that always were trying to make the lesson interesting so you could learn more and they were open to answer questions and help.

Second, people from LSI are really helpful and friendly. They make after school activities everyday that helps to get to know different places, others students outside de classroom and make friends.

And finally, even thougth LSI´s facility were nothing fancy, it was ok. It was clean and it is located about a block from the metro station and not even one from YMCA.

visa

Visa support

We cannot apply for visas on behalf of students. However, the school can supply you with all the documentation you need to support your visa application.

If you are studying full time in the United States for more than 18 hours per week, you will receive an I-20 that you need to submit to the US embassy along with your F-1 student visa application. The I-20 has a SEVIS tracking number on it. Students who wish to apply for a student visa must pay the SEVIS fee online before going to the US embassy or consulate for their visa interview.

Your I-20 will be sent to your home address by regular mail at no charge to you. If you wish to receive your paperwork by express mail, you will be charged $65 when you register.

Please note that United States law states that an I-20 can only be issued to students who intend to pursue full-time English language studies. United States law does not permit students to study part-time with an F-1 Student Visa. If you are studying for less than 18 hours per week, you have to apply for a Visitor Visa (B1/B2) on your own.
