The Intercultural Institute of California (IIC) has brought a leading ESL program to the heart of San Francisco since 1994. In May, 2017, we opened an additional campus in the historic Jack London Square in downtown Oakland.
Both our locations are within walking distance to many cultural and natural attractions. Near our campuses you will find many shops, restaurants, parks, and museums. In San Francisco you are right next to the lively Polk Street and beautiful Japan Town. In Oakland you are just minutes from the beautiful bayfront waterside, China Town, and many new restaurants and businesses.
IIC welcomes international students from around the world and thrives on diversity. Our English language school originated with a group of Korean immigrants who shared a great dream of quality and affordable education for international students (AKA, KCI). As a not for profit organization, we offer exceptional education at the most affordable tuition prices in the area. Our flexible schedule allows students to choose either a 2-day schedule or a 4-day schedule. IIC is proud to be accredited by CEA and upholds its standards of excellence in English Language teaching and administration.
**CEA is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a national accrediting agency specializing in the accreditation of English Language programs.
The Intercultural Institute of California (IIC) is a non-profit institution incorporated with the mission of “providing post-secondary students with affordable, quality non-degree extension study programs through establishment of formal curricula and regular faculty.” More specifically, these educational programs are designed to fulfill our students’ varied learning needs, and to empower them with the necessary skills to understand and communicate with people from different cultures.
