Das Zimmer war in Ordnung allerdings war das geteilte Badezimmer sehr unsauber und sehr klein. Es müsste mit der kompletten Etage geteilt werden und es hat eigentlich nur eine Dusche richtig funktioniert. Die Lage ist super und man ist super schnell in der Stadt.

Tanto la calidad del programa como la ciudad de destino, han generado la sensación de "estar como en casa", desde el primer momento en que llegué. También ha sido muy importante la media de edad, donde compartir las mismas inquietudes e intereses fuera de tu país, es fundamental. Escuela muy familiar y atención personalizada. Actividades múltiples extras de la jornada de clases.

Embassy English, New York
Duration: 3 weeks

I always wanted to go to New York; finally, I decided to go there for a language stay. Embassy English is a really good school, with motivated and helpful teachers. The school staff was also very helpful. The teaching method was very diverse and never boring. I didn’t learn only grammar and vocabulary, but we had interesting conversations as well. Everyone could participate. No one was excluded and I made friends very easily. Every day, the school organized different excursions and it was good to participate, as for example, some museums were cheaper. Knicks tickets were cheaper as well! The programme was very varied. My host family was very nice, we got along very well. New York is a fantastic city and it’s ideal if you want to improve your English skills or learn the language from scratch. People are very open and help you find your way in the street! Thank you ESL, for this unforgettable trip!

Embassy English, New York
Duration: 12 weeks

What I like the most about Embassy is undoubtedly the warm-hearted atmosphere. From my first day here I have felt comfortable and welcomed. I have met wonderful friends here. I really enjoy spending my time with people from all around the world.

Moreover, lessons are very well thought: from the first day onwards, you learn a lot about the English language (vocabulary, grammar...) but also about American culture. You have so much fun during classes. What makes them so interesting is the way teachers give them: they teach you while trying to have fun.

What I really like about living in New York is that the city never leaves you bored. There is always something to do:
I particularly enjoy hanging out with my friends in Central Park.

It is a lovely and peaceful place where you can relax. I also appreciate the diversity of museums, going to the restaurants, shopping and of course visiting some famous places like Times Square. I am convinced that New York is the best place to improve your English while having fun.

In order to get to the school from where you're staying, it may take around 90 minutes.

The school offers a program of sports, social and cultural activities. Given the enormous amount of leisure activities for all tastes that you’ll find in New York, very few activities are organised outside of the city. The Big Apple is the uncontested capital of Jazz and Hall Music, welcoming artistic creations among the most prestigious and innovative in the world. The artistic life in New York is as vast as the multitude of cultures that are represented there. Some even have their own district, like Little Italy, China Town or Spanish Harlem: all worth a visit. To get away from the urban atmosphere, there’s nothing better than going to the centre, to the lungs of New York: Central Park. Here, you can stroll around the forest, forget that you’re in the city, have a siesta by the lake, enjoy just about any sport, visit places of high culture like the Metropolitan Museum, or simply wander through one of the most beautiful and surprising parks in the world! One thing’s for sure, you won’t get bored in New York.
