Positive aspects of school
As I requested to lower my class, the school changed it without any problems. The teachers explain well. The activity calender is very useful. You can go to some events cheaper. (In my case, "Cirque du Soleil")
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
It's very convenient, as Grand Central Station is within walking distance. The school has two offices. A main office has a student room and PCs though, another has less facilities. You can't choose which building you study in. It's totally up to your luck.
Other comments
Facilities, class and teachers are all good. In summer time, there're many Japanese and Spanish.

The groups with less than 10 students allow to have an interesting conversation and to have the possibility to talk more often.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
There are so many things to see in New York that it is difficult to quote only 1 thing. I would say the rooftop bar at 230-fifth.
Other comments
The shool is very well located. The classrooms are fine. However, the accommodation price is a bit high even if it is quite big and well located (south of Harlem in my case). The furniture was damaged in my flat and there were only few kitchen utensils.

New York is a fantastic city and living there for several weeks is a great experience. The school is good, although having a good teacher is a very important factor to help you to improve your language skills and, in my case, I was not very happy with mine.

Other comments
If you're not in the right level (at least if the level is too low) you have to ask the school staff to go up a level. I think the teacher should give you a sign about that, it shouldn't just be up to you. I paid a lot of money and wasted two whole weeks.

The class had mixed too many people in the sense that he also had Korean / Japanese who did not understand English language so much and it meant a drawback for students who were advanced, and however the ones that had good language properties, and because my class was a Conversation one we were eventually forced to speak and it was such an uncomfortable nuisance! Then I attended a month of Steps on Broadway dance school, and I loved her from the very first moment! Very ighly trained and very professional teachers, and all the classes very punctual according to the timetables that are in the special booklets! I attended also the Jazz and Contemporary dance class and I highly recommend it to all! I hope to return there one day, it was really such a great experience and an excellent choice!
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
The teachers must be patient if some Asian student has a terrible pronunciation of words in English but for the rest this school give you a very good chance, that is to be in contact with people from all around the world, and of course, you can talk to them in English ... and this automatically will follow a very great improvement!
