Our LISA! Language School in Downtown San Francisco is located just a few minutes from the ‘Flat Iron Building’, Chinatown and the piers. Our range of courses includes private lessons, too. The school building is surrounded by many shops, restaurants and cafes. You can travel by ‘cable car’ over San Francisco´s famous steep street and reach the ‘Fisherman’s Wharf’ or the entertainment district ‘Pier 39’. At sunset, we recommend that you get to the ‘Cliff House’ on the west coast of the peninsula to enjoy an amazing view of Golden Gate Bridge. This vibrant and cosmopolitan city is home to people from all corners of the world. San Francisco´s Chinatown is the biggest in the US: here you can buy real Chinese tea, hand painted silk scarves and have your hand read by a chiromancer. San Francisco´s nightlife is mostly in Mission District, where you can eat a burrito while watching people during dancing salsa, or in the hustle and bustle of Folsom Street.
