What we like about New York

New York is known as the city that never sleeps! It is vast, with an excellent subway system. This makes it easy to get around and explore top sights such as the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge. Do not neglect to walk the streets as you may well come across a pop up concert or celebrity spot. It is often the unplanned events that hold the best stories! The city is safe for a large city in the USA, as long as you are sensible and stick to the crowds, particularly at night. Despite having the reputation of a concrete jungle, there are a large number of parks. Why not escape the city chaos with an afternoon in Central Park. It’s all there waiting for you!

What we dislike about New York

New York has a high density population of both locals and tourists. It should not surprise you to see long queues outside the best venues. As mentioned before, there is a lot to do here and you will not be able to do it all,so plan wisely. It does give you a perfect excuse to come again another year.

What our students said about New York

Rating: 5/5


The city is very attractive for the cultural activities it provides, but, except for visiting parks and a few other tourist attractions, many activities can be costly and ends up limiting our participation (entrance fees to museums and theaters without discount for foreign students is frustrating).

New York is amazing. Too bad my kid didn't get to feel it. I'll have to take her to the Met, Ellis Island museum and Statue of Liberty again - she didn't learn a thing from her silent tour with this school.

The quality of the lessons, the teachers, and the location were absolutely impeccable. After a placement test on the first day, the class started at 11 a.m. A unit is worked through every week and the teachers are happy to provide information outside of the box. The togetherness in the class was pleasant. At the end of two weeks I go complete my course with an improvement in my language and new friends.

Teachers were very good for everyone in the school. And also the location of the school was very useful. I could go Times Square with my friends in Rennert and it was so fun.

The thing I mostly liked about this school was the interaction between teachers and students. I could, in a single week of school, meet 4 different teachers with 4 different teaching styles. Anyway the involvement and the students'care was very high. In this way beyond the linguistic progress, the fear of express yourself has been replaced by the will of a good communication
In addition to the teachers, even all the staff is very polite and prepared.
