Brooklyn is located a few hundred meters from Manhattan, just over the iconic suspension bridge with its neo-gothic towers. Life is radically different here: you are surrounded by a mosaic of communities and wrapped in a village atmosphere which comes in sharp contrast to Manhattan’s busy streets. The area is a unique melting pot, a setting for movies, with its famous brownstone houses lining wooded alleys, sandy beaches stretching for miles and natural spaces which are as attractive (if not more) as Central Park. Woody Allen and Michael Jordan, Lou Reed and Jay Z are children of Brooklyn, hailing from the cosmopolitan communities which have settled here over the centuries.

Just 5 minutes’ walk away from the iconic bridge, in the heart of Brooklyn Heights, our partner school welcomes you to a friendly environment. Its location, just one metro station away from Manhattan, is a great asset. From the classrooms, you will enjoy spectacular views of the most famous skyline in the world. With a maximum capacity of 12 students (8 for business English), classes offer excellent study conditions and teachers can give personal attention to each student. Facilities include free Wi-Fi throughout the school building, iPad minis and a student lounge in which to socialise with the other participants from all over the world. There is a wide array of shopping centres, restaurants and coffee shops to enjoy in the immediate surroundings of the course centre.

Ha sido una experiencia increíble e inolvidable que se ha hecho muy corta La escuela es genial, con unas vistas espectaculares desde el piso 34 a todo el skyline de Manhattan. La infraestructura de la escuela está realmente bien, moderna y acogedora. La verdad es que estoy realmente satisfecha con las clases, el nivel era muy bueno y alto (cosa que no todas las escuelas tienen), la metodología de las clases diferente a la habitual con buena mezcla entre grammar, listening, reading, writting, etc. Clases muy dinámicas que hacían que no perdieses la atención ni el interés en ningún momento. El hecho de estar tan pocos alumnos por clase hace que las clases sean muy efectivas. El profesor tenía gran experiencia y un don nato para dar clase, y parecido tengo entendido de la mayoría de profesores.

Do you think you've made progress?
« La verdad es que sí. Las clases me supusieron un reto personal a pesar de tener un nivel bastante alto, cosa que no me solía pasar en otras escuelas. Al principio sólo desengrasas pero enseguida te das cuenta de que el inglés sale sólo y hasta piensas en inglés. He notado un gran progreso en soltura y pronunciación. Quizá tres semanas hayan sido poco porque cuando realmente estás involucrado y mejorando es cuando te tienes que marchar, »

Angenehme kleine Schule was den Aufenthalt persönlich macht. Kleine Klassen max. 10-12 Personen. Ich war zwei Wochen dort und hatte zwei verschiedene Lehrpersonen der erste war super und die zweite war nicht so mein Typ von Mensch. Aber war trotzdem gut. Die Lage ist super! Metro vor der Türe wo man schnell nach Manhattan kommt. Aber auch zu Fuss ist man schnell an tollen Orten in Brooklyn. Die Schule bietet tolle Freizeitaktivitäten an.

Testimonials

Until now, the 6 weeks spent in New York were the best of my life! The city, the people and of course the gastronomy deserve a 100% positive satisfaction. When you stay for such a long period, you do not live like a tourist. After two weeks and through taking the subway everyday, chatting with the locals in the street and living the New Yorkers’ daily life, one feels like a local. I very much recommend the Brooklyn School of Language. There, you learn to know many people and you undertake many activities with them, as well as with the school. For example: a visit of the Rockefeller Center, ice skating in the Bryant Park, visits of many museums or an evening on Times Square… New York was the happy alternative to my daily life in Germany. Not only did I learn many things but I also got to know myself! I will certainly never forget this experience. Thanks to ESL for the supervision and the optimal organization of my language stay.

Brooklyn Schools of LanguagesNew York
Duration: 11 weeks

I spent 11 weeks in New York and attended a course at the Brooklyn School of Languages. It was a beautiful experience. Being in the “calm” of Brooklyn but only a 15-minute ride to Manhattan allowed me to enjoy the Big Apple while living the real New Yorker life in Brooklyn. The school is on the 34th floor of one of the only skyscrapers in this area – the 360° view on Manhattan is mind-blowing! I couldn’t get enough! The school is small, the team is very nice and I made new friends on the first day. The school organises 2 activities per week, to discover all the different areas of New York. In class, we speak a lot because groups are pretty small, but do less grammar. Enjoy your stay in Brooklyn!

Brooklyn doesn't compete with Manhattan – showcasing its differences, the “village in the city” is proud to offer less classy but cooler entertainment options.

Prospect Park is a major Brooklyn attraction: 240 hectares of glorious nature at the heart of the city’s urban landscape. With its historic buildings, zoo, basketball, baseball and tennis courts, cycle lanes and running paths, this oasis of greenery is highly rated by locals and very popular among visitors. You can walk there from the course centre.

The school will take you to discover other attractions in the district. Explore the Brooklyn Flea Market, meet amazing people, grab one-off bargains and taste international food in the surrounding restaurants. Brooklyn offers intense nightlife, alternative clubs and friendly bars which can easily entice you to stay on this side of the bridge. Anyhow, if you decide to spend the night in Manhattan, be sure to cross the famous Brooklyn Bridge and see the sun set behind the skyscrapers. There is a wide range of fabulous museums in Manhattan, including the MOMA, the Guggenheim and other world-famous institutions. Also take the ferry to Staten Island passing the Statue of Liberty. There are so many things to explore and enjoy in the city that never sleeps, so get ready for an intense language study stay in the USA!
