  • Enjoy Spanish
    Language has always been personal for Carlos Bazan. When he hears Spanish, he thinks of a childhood spent in Peru. He feels his love for Latin culture, and a life spent studying languages across the world—from Europe to California's coast. After moving to San Francisco, Carlos found a new way to connect with language: teaching. After a few years as an educator, he founded Enjoy Spanish in 2006. Personal connections are the focus of his educational philosophy, which touches on grammar, vocabulary, and culture. During group and private lessons, he leads engaging conversations that connect students to the subject matter more directly than forcing them to wear hats woven out of dictionaries. Of course, Carlos also incorporates grammar material and homework, but he puts a creative spin on things with techniques such as role playing. Outside of class, Carlos encourages his students to infuse Spanish into things they already love. If they like movies, he'll suggest they rent a foreign film. If they're bookworms, he'll encourage them to rediscover a favorite story in a new language. And if they're travelers, he'll even lead them on trips to Spanish-speaking countries. Through all of this, he has developed lasting relationships with many of his students, who range from lawyers, to professors, to personal trainers.

  • San Francisco School Of Digital Filmmaking
    To propel students feet-first into the industry, the San Francisco School of Digital Filmmaking has designed a project-based curriculum that combines traditional classroom study with real-world training. The school's one-year program covers the filmmaking process from start to finish, including independent filmmaking in different genres such as fiction, commercials, documentary, and straight-to-Internet shorts of cats completing three-act emotional arcs without ever leaving their boxes. At the end of the project-based program, each student comes away with more than five completed projects that include a 30-second commercial and an 8- to 12-minute thesis film, plus crewing on an additional 25 or more student films. The school also leads shorter programs and workshops designed for the active student, film enthusiast, or veteran filmmaker. Workshops include one-day, two-week, five-week, and three-month filmmaking courses, and a six-month documentary filmmaking program, though few humans can stay awake for a full six month-long movie.

  • San Francisco City Guides
    The volunteer guides at San Francisco City Guides don't just hit mandated talking points—instead, they each create their walking tours from scratch, highlighting their favorite corners of the city in the process. They currently host more than 70 unique tours for month, some of which explore the historic Castro district, while others ramble through Golden Gate Park or San Francisco City Hall. Regardless of the area, the guides focus on history and architecture rather than the length of the sidewalk cracks, a focus that has kept the tours popular since 1978.
