My husband was transferred to San Francisco. It seems to be good (the salary became much higher, and with his language everything is fine), but at first I felt like a black sheep, because besides "How old are you?" I did not know anything.
E-mailed to the guys from SMAPSE, they advised good language courses at St. Giles San Francisco. In general, while Vadim (my husband) earned money, I spent it ^_^. In the end, very, very satisfied. Only two months have passed, and with my inability to speak languages, I can now feel free in shops and on the streets. So the level of language preparation is very decent.
