Summer in San Francisco is even hotter with TALK’s special activities
Summer is here and San Francisco has become a party! The season is the peak of tourism in the Bay Area: people from all over the world are attracted by the weather with high temperatures softened by strong winds that come from the sea and by the cold, wet fog in the morning. Fairs, parades and festivals are the greatest attractions that make Summer an excellent opportunity to have fun while learning English in the United States.
TALK English Schools‘ brand-new Summer special activities will bring students together! The school’s privileged location in the Fisherman’s Wharf neighborhood in the heart of San Francisco makes access to many activities scattered throughout the city easier. Check out some of the attractions that will make your Summer even more fun.
