What students liked about Rennert International, New York
The teacher was very nice and made me feel comfortable. It was the most important for me. There were just 6 or 7 students like me in my classroom, involving a good level of participation of each student during the course.

Other comments: Wonderful stay in NYC ! This place is magic.
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")

Additional information
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 teachers are all young (maybe average 33) and motivated. They are “real” New Yorkers and will help you with things you should know about the city or the interesting things in the USA.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The activities are a good option to get know students from all over world. It's really fun and you can improve your English! Go to the jazz clubs and the football games!! :-)
Other comments: I liked my time in New York, It was a great experience and I hope to go back some day. New York is very expensive but that's o.k. - it's a city of superlatives! Unfortunately I think that finding the right accommodation is not easy.
The buildings of the school are in the city center very near to everything, the classrooms are small, the teachers and stuff are friendly, there are students from all over the world
