Check out the main activities that TALK has prepared for your winter in San Francisco:
Tours to landmarks
A visit to Alcatraz Island, the most well-known American federal prison which shut down in 1963, is one of the city’s most popular tours. Students will take the ferry to the infamous island and take a self-guided audio tour in English or in their own language, inside and outside the prison. It’s a great opportunity to take lots of selfies!
Another must-do is the tour of the famous Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. The San Francisco one was the 17th of the franchise to open, in 2014, and features wax statues of famous personalities from movies, music, politics and sports, including historical figures of the city. And… it’s a five-minute walk from TALK’s school!
Giving back to the community
In addition to practicing your English skills and meeting students from all around the world, TALK San Francisco’s special activities also give you chance to contribute to the local community. During a volunteer activity with Project Open Hand, a non-profit organization that provides meals and nutritious groceries to help the elderly and ill recover and live healthier lives, you will assist in the kitchen preparing meals and organizing donations in the warehouse.
Improve your English skills + meet new friends = fun!
