Es war einfach nur eine unglaubliche Erfahrung. Die Schule und die Unterkunft waren sehr gut vor allem vom Standort. Habe viele Freunde aus verschiedensten Nationen gefunden und viel über deren Kulturen erfahren. Allein das war es Wert. Unterricht hat viel geholfen und Spaß gemacht. Jeden tag konnte man etwas unternehmen und alle zwei wochen waren Exkursionen in andere Städte. Die Reise hat mich sehr geprägt und ich bin sogar daran interessiert für ein paar jahre in die USA zu gehen. Evtl um nochmal Schule zu machen oder auch beruflich. Bin derzeit davei viele Informationen zu sammeln um es zu verwirklichen.

« Ja definitiv. Gerade in den Zeitformen und dem Satzbau bin ich viel sicherer geworden. Die Lehrer konnten dies gut vermitteln. »
School highlights
« Zum Unterricht bin ich sehr gerne gegangen da es viel Spaß gemacht hat. »
Top tips
« Man sollte unbedingt auf den Top of the Rock, Rossevelt Island und nach Brooklyn zur Dumbo Aussichtsplattform. Es ist einfach nur überwältigend die Skyline der Stadt zu sehen. Dazu sind die ganzen Rooftopbars einzigartig. »

EC, New York
Duration: 20 weeks

New York is a great city and you can do whatever you want. There is something for every taste. You can enjoy nature in Central Park, you can go shopping, walk near the Hudson River, see a musical etc. I like the teachers at EC because they are really motivated. You can have fun and learn at the same time. There are many students, so you can make friends easily.

I appreciate the great location of the school, right in the city centre, so you can easily go anywhere after school! Everybody at EC is so friendly that they make you feel at home in no time! I like that the subjects we cover in class are not typical, boring ones, but are interesting and in a certain way, challenging. I like that the people in New York are generally nice and helpful. Also, I love the feeling of being in a multicultural society, where different people manage to live together without bothering each other.

Duration: 20 weeks

I would recommend EC New York because the teachers are really good, the courses are taught in a fun and good way, and there is a good nationality mix, which means that there are not a lot of people who speak the same native language. There is a good atmosphere in the school and if you need something, you can always find someone to help you answer your question. I like New York because it's full of beautiful places and there is always something to do. You're never bored in NY! You can walk in Central Park, a few minutes later, you can swim in the ocean of Brighton Beach and in the evening, you can enjoy a cocktail with your friends and some famous people on the roof of a tall building!
