Accommodation

Stafford House San Francisco offers a range of accommodation options. Whether you would prefer to live independently in a student residence, or with an English speaking family, we have a flexible accommodation option to help you get the most out of learning English in California! 

Homestay Accommodations

Living with a family is an excellent way to really experience American traditions and culture. It’s also a perfect opportunity to practice your English language skills with real Americans every day.

If you choose our homestay option, you will stay with a family in the Bay Area. We have carefully checked and interviewed them and we trust them to provide you with a great stay! You can choose to have a single room, or share a room with another student. Families provide 14 meals per week (breakfast and dinner). Most host families are located within 40-60 minutes of Stafford House Centers by public transportation.

At Stafford House we do all we can to ensure we match you with your perfect homestay. If you wish to truly experience American culture by staying at one of our homestays, please allow us 4 weeks before you arrive at the school to arrange your accommodation to ensure we can find a homestay experience best suited to you.

  • Andrea Moran

    Student Services Manager

    I love learning about different cultures and helping international students learn about life in San  Francisco. Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, I’ve traveled to over 20 countries, taught English in Chile, and worked in international education for many years before coming to Stafford House. I plan the school’s activities, and can help you with F-1 visa questions, program extensions, transfers, and any other questions students have about life here. Welcome!

  • Joy Suzuki

    Center Director                        

    My passion for learning languages is what led me into the field of international education. After studying French and Spanish in high school and college and traveling around Europe, I spent 2 years living and working in Japan as an EFL teacher, so I understand first-hand just how rewarding and life-changing an experience crossing cultures can be.

    I’ve worked in many different capacities in international education for over 20 years: ESL/EFL teaching and tutoring, coordinating and marketing educational travel programs, counseling and advising international students, and leading the ESL department at an international school. I’m excited to be a part of the Stafford House team in my role as Director of Studies, supporting teachers and helping students have the cross-cultural experience of a lifetime.

    I would recommend Stafford House to my friends. When I arrived in San Francisco, I had many meetings and presentations. With One-to-One English classes, I could make completely tailor made classes according to my needs and objectives. All my teachers were so prepared. In my case, I could identify the specific pronunciation and grammar to improve my presentations and meetings. The classes have helped me with my goals!
