All students have access to all campus facilities: housing, student health service, library, computer labs, and sports facilities. Don’t forget to take advantage of our workshops and individual assistance with San Francisco State University admission, applying to local Bay Area community colleges and immigration regulations, as well as our conversations programs:

  • Conversation Partner Program (for high intermediate and advanced students) that pairs ALI students with American university students for conversation and social activities during the fall and spring sessions only.
  • Conversation Groups Program (for low intermediate and intermediate students) that groups four to six ALI students to practice conversation in a fun, relaxing way with two SF State MA TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) graduate students.
