Why do you think your school is a Quality English school?

Quality English’s high standards of excellence mirror CISL’s mission of helping our clients learn to communicate effectively and with confidence in English. Converse International School of Languages has been successfully teaching English to international students and professionals since 1972. Small diverse classes, highly qualified faculty, and superior individualized attention set CISL apart. We have the added benefit of having years of perfected academic success in an industry that is constantly in influx. We are pleased to be a part of this wonderful professional community.

What made you join Quality English?

Quality English is an organization that we are drawn to due to its spirit of collaboration and professionalism. Becoming part of a community that makes the experience of choosing a high-quality school easy for the potential student is exactly what the industry needs. In addition to the comfort of knowing that CISL is CEA accredited and a part of the Quality English community, students can have confidence in their decision to invest in their education with an established private school.

Why would you recommend Quality English from what you know so far?

Although we are new to the Quality English community, we are looking forward to the opportunities open to us as QE members. Meeting new agents and participating in the missions, are all positive benefits of being a part of such a professional organization.

What are the main reasons to recommend Converse International School of Languages to an international student wishing to study in English?

Our programs are unique and we have solid results for all our students: adults, executives, and juniors.

  • Our adult students appreciate our dedication to excellence and excel in small classes of 8 students maximum per class (average 7). Both CISL’s San Diego and San Francisco locations are CEA accredited and are official Cambridge testing centers. Our PET/FCE/CAE students love the fact that they can study with us and also take their tests in a familiar environment with highly qualified staff.
  • CISL’s Executive/Business programs with 4 students per class offer seasoned professionals academically challenging programs that advance their careers.
  • Our summer programs for teens at university campuses (Georgetown, Loyala Chicago,Yale, UC Berkeley, University of San Diego, LMU/Los Angeles) offer young adults the opportunity to learn English in some of the most prestigous universities in the country while socializing with other like-minded teens from all over the world.
  • CISL ties in the full Californian experience with exciting activities (surfing, sky-diving, etc.) and strong homestay and convenient accommodations in downtown San Diego and San Francisco.
