Letter from Zachary Captain, Founder of AEA
I would like to welcome you to a unique, fun, and exciting English language school. We are Advance English Academy, one of the best language schools in CA, and we are dedicated to help you learn English in San Francisco, Berkeley, or on Online.
Learning (American) English involves understanding American culture. If you enjoy and understand American culture, you will enjoy and quickly improve your English. For this reason, we integrate fun events, activities & exciting excursions as part of the AEA program:
• AEA lives for travel. We offer optional weekend excursions, such as skiing/snowboarding (winter) & water skiing (summer) at Lake Tahoe, hiking in Yosemite National Park, camping trips to places like Pt. Reyes National Seashore, and that's just the beginning.
• AEA is into community volunteering. We offer optional volunteer activities for students inspired to help our surrounding community and environment (helping to beautify Golden Gate Park, helping out at local soup kitchens, etc.).
Conveniently located in the center of San Francisco, 2 blocks from the Civic Center BART station, AEA is a small, friendly English language school where you will instantly feel at home. I-20 available. Advance English Academy is able to offer a high level of personalized ESL/TOFEL lessons, allowing you to learn English quickly and easily.
