Right next to the Empire State Building, our partner school welcomes you on the 7th floor of a modern and attractive art-deco building on 5th Avenue. There, in the heart of bustling Manhattan, you will study English together with students coming from the four corners of the world. Easily reachable by public transport, the school offers excellent facilities: 17 modern classrooms equipped with interactive whiteboards, a library, a digital language laboratory, free Wi-Fi connection, a student bookshop, a self-access centre, computers and a canteen.
To relax after class and have lunch, you will also take advantage of the Student Café and Lounge, designed exclusively for the students of the school. In this stimulating atmosphere, you will make rapid progress under the guidance of experienced and motivated teachers. You will be placed in a small group (max. 12 students) according to your level, which will allow you to receive the necessary support and attention for quick and effective learning.
And after class, you will dive into the fascinating world of the Big Apple with your new friends, either on your own or during the activities organised by the school. Greenwich Village, Times Square, Central Park, 5th Avenue and its countless boutiques: all these mythical places will be close at hand! Can you think of anything better for your language course in New York?
