Our center in San Francisco occupies four floors of a historic building which has been refurbished into a modern language and business center. The building is located on famous downtown Market Street – home to some of the USA’s best shopping and dining opportunities - and just two blocks from a Cable Car stop, popular Union Square and the gates of Chinatown.
You'll find all the materials and resources you need for the CELTA course, including a library of resources, computers, printers, photocopiers and stationery. Our teaching practice rooms are also equipped with interactive boards and projectors, as well as traditional whiteboards.
We also have a cafe on site with freshly-cooked lunches that are excellent value and you'll be able to find areas of the school to socialize, relax or work during the course.

Help with Employment
Every course includes seminars which give practical, informed advice on:
How and where to find TEFL jobs
How to write a TEFL resume
Typical jobs and conditions of work
How to evaluate job offers and contracts
In addition, the center has assisted literally hundreds of schools with their recruitment needs, and have built up an extensive network of overseas contacts. Many overseas employers now contact us directly when they are looking for teachers and we pass this information on to our CELTA trainees.
Hotels and Residences
We can offer a wide choice of accommodation options to suit all ages and budgets. St Giles International has a team of trained staff to help with your stay.
If a trainee cancels his or her place on a course more than 30 days before the start of the course, full fees will be refunded minus the deposit. Further refunds cannot be made either before, during or after the course, except in the case of course cancellation by St Giles.
San Francisco is one of the USA's most cosmopolitan, vibrant and international cities.
With a population of 800,000, the city combines commercial buzz with a lively and alternative ‘beat’ culture, giving it a relaxed yet vibrant atmosphere.
It is ideal for trainees looking for the true Californian experience and a friendly welcome.
