Study English in Santa Barbara

There are no skyscrapers to block the views of the sky and sea in this sophisticated little coastal town. With its red-tiled roofs, white stucco walls and palm trees, Santa Barbara often feels as if it’s been transported straight from Tuscany or Spain – but its broad white beaches are pure California. Just steps outside our Santa Barbara English school, a stroll down the flower-lined State Street will take you towards the ocean, passing outdoor wine bars and fashion boutiques along the way.
