Full –Time Students

Golden Gate Language School (GGLS) has two full-time programs.

Both programs allow you to study and practice English all day at the school – in the classroom, during social activities, at lunchtime and, of course, with your friends.

If you are planning to attend a U.S. college or university after your English studies, you might consider entering the Conditional College Acceptance Program. At GGLS, you can prepare for the TOEFL Test or complete the TOEFL Waiver Guaranteed Transfer Program.

College Track
Lets you complete each English proficiency level in 4 weeks. You will study 5 hours per day Monday through Friday (25 hours per week) and reach English fluency and admission to one of our affiliate colleges and universities in the shortest possible time.
General Track
Allows you to complete your English studies at a less intensive pace. You will study full-time but only 5 hours per day Monday through Thursday (20 hours per week).
Part-Time Instruction

We recommend a schedule of 1-4 hours per day if you want to improve your English and also have time for other activities. You can advance your English speaking and listening skills and then spend the rest of the day exploring California.

Start classes at any time and study for any length of time. Just call a few days in advance to schedule a placement test and evaluation.
