Message from the Director

I am happy you are interested in the American Language Institute (ALI) at San Francisco State University.

Since 1961, the ALI has been on the SF State campus preparing students like you for success using English. I am very proud of our well-trained teachers and our up-to-date curriculum.

We offer you more than English teaching: Every week the ALI will take you to interesting and important places in this exciting and beautiful city and you’ll also have lots of opportunities to have fun with your classmates and local people. We will also help you meet university students for conversation.

So please explore our website and contact us if you have questions.

Thank you again for your interest in the ALI and I hope to meet you soon.

Best wishes,
Kathy Sherak
