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!

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.
