New York ist die perfekte Stadt für einen Sprachaufenthalt. Die Atmosphäre der magischen Stadt ist einzigartig. Man trifft auf Menschen aus der ganzen Welt und kann viele Dinge unternehmen. Langeweile kommt in New York nie auf. Zentrale Lage mit perfektem Ausblick auf die Stadt - Kompetente Lehrer sorgen für spannenden Unterricht - Stühle etwas unbequem - Bunter Nationenmix der nicht ganz ausgeglichen war (viele Italiener) Nette Lehrer mit spannendem Unterricht Sehr schöne Residenz in perfekter Lage - Kontakt zu anderen Studenten wird vereinfacht - nette Lounge mit Billardtischen - guter Fitnessraum - Security im Hotel sorgt für Sicherheit Eher selten Teilnahme an Aktivitäten, da vieles auch eigenwillig organisiert wurde Vielen Dank für die Organisation meiner unvergesslichen Sprachreise !

Testimonials

My language course with ESL at Kaplan Empire State Building was a rich and unforgettable experience. The courses were interesting. The teacher chose topics that were thought-provoking on an intellectual level and allowed us to work on our language skills, but also to have a real intercultural debate. The students came from Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Korea and Japan. There were people from various ages in our group, which allowed for a high intellectual level and a great atmosphere.

The Big Apple, a dream come true! First, the heart of Brooklyn, where my host family lives. Then, the Flatbush Ave tube station. A few tube stations later, I find myself in Manhattan. The school is right in the middle of Time Square, so it’s always very busy. As regards classes, the atmosphere is great, you can meet people from all over the world and the staff is excellent!

Here, everything is possible, there is so much to do that you would need to stay for at least a whole year to visit everything! I had the opportunity to see, among others, the Statue of Liberty, the MoMA, Central Park, the top of the Empire State Building, Chinatown… All the landmark places! New York is a city that moves fast, so it’s impossible to get bored here! And the Americans are open-minded and friendly, unlike what you might hear.

The food is said to be unhealthy here, but it is not that bad. There are many fastfoods, but a very wide choice! You are free to choose what you want to eat, and believe me, you can have a balanced meal if you want to.

As far as I am concerned, I fell in love with the city that never sleeps. The nightlife is also very rich. Don’t hesitate to discover this city, it is really worth it!

The school was easily reachable from my accommodation. Morning classes were focused on communication and simple grammar rules. The exercises we did were quite engaging, as they included reading and exchanging opinions within the group. The afternoon homework usually consisted in researching unknown words or sentences that we had heard or read somewhere. In the afternoon, I visited the city with my new friends. In the evening, there was always something to do: restaurants, theatres or bars. My room was good but simple. In conclusion, I can say that it was a fantastic experience that I would love to repeat.

Host family
The dream chance to live like a real New Yorker by sharing the daily life of an American family! This is an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself in the local way of life and to practise your English in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. You will stay in a single or double room with half board provided and, taking into consideration the size of the city, you will have to expect a journey of around 45-60 minutes to get to the school.

New Yorker residence
In the heart of Manhattan, this residence is surrounded by New York’s most famous attractions: Broadway’s theatres, Madison Square Garden, Macy’s and much more. You will stay in a single or twin room, with private bathroom (no toiletries nor toilet paper included). Enjoy the multiple restaurants, shops and entertainments in this dynamic area! Close to the school, this excellent accommodation in the city that never sleeps features game rooms, kitchens, study rooms, a fitness studio and a paying laundry. It is air-conditioned and monitored 24/7.

New York is one of the best-known and most popular student destinations in the world. Visitors have a plethora of entertainment opportunities to choose from, with over 80 magnificent museums, 150 theatres, 30 concert halls and countless shops, restaurants and bars... you'll never grow tired of exploring the city. After your English classes, why not relax in Central Park? If you prefer action, don't hesitate to go along to a football, baseball or hockey game... and if you want to learn a bit more about the many and varied cultures of New York, visit the main districts of the city, such as China Town or Little Italy... A delight for all your senses!
