Testimonials

I have been studying at LSI for two weeks. After the placement test, on the first day, I was placed in a group corresponding to my level. The lessons are varied and interesting. Not only do we work on our grammar skills, but we also discuss current events from the daily papers. Today, we visited the « Museum of the Moving Image », which gave a relaxed atmosphere to the lesson. Besides, we are going to write a summary of our impressions about this museum next week.

There is a lot to say about LSI but the most important point is my improvement in English. I did a lot of progress and I really can feel it when I talk to people or when I have to write. To be honest, being in the CAE level it's a lot of work, but it's rewarding. I had a wonderful teacher and I met a lot of people from all over the world, with others cultures and I'm sure that I'll keep in touch with most of them. LSI-NYC is a great school, we have a lot of different activities to do every week. And being situated in the same floor of The Metropolitan College is a really good thing too because we can speak with English speakers and it helps.

I enjoyed New York. It's an amazing city. And the fact that the school is situated in Manhattan, in Canal Street is perfect. We're near everything. I've already been in New york, but never that long and it's an amazing experience. I had time to see a lot of things and to feel myself like a New Yorker. It's a huge city, with a lot of things to see and to do, I never found the time to be bored. I really don't want to go back. I wish I could stay here.

Honestly, I would recommend LSI-NYC to everybody. No doubt. For everyone who wants to learn English and have a great time, it's the place to be.

It's most than a language's experience. Let's try it.

LSI New York has some excellent teachers, whose main characteristics are warmth and motivation.

The atmosphere, being serious and professional, brings the best out in students.

The facilities are incredibly comfortable and their students are very friendly.

To sum up, in addition to all this, the course was in New York; so what more could you ask for?

Host family The school personally takes care of selecting the most suitable host families for its students. You will have your breakfast only or half board provided. This immersion into New York life is an excellent means of progressing in the language. Given the vast size of the city, you will often need to allow for at least an hour by public transport to get to the school.

Residence "YMCA Vanderbilt" The school also offers accommodation at the YMCA Vanderbilt residence, which is located in the east district of Manhattan, close to Grand Central Station and around 30 minutes from the school itself. Accommodation is in single rooms without meals, the bathroom is shared with other international students and you can make use of the gym, swimming pool, internet café and restaurant on the first floor. Please note: due to a shortage of availability, think of booking in advance!

There is always plenty to do in New York and every moment of your experience will enrich your knowledge of English. Our partner school’s activities coordinator organises several excursions per week, for example, a visit to  television studios, an evening at the jazz clubs of Harlem, a baseball match, discovery of the city's boroughs, lunch or dinner in a restaurant and museum tours. Discovering the city and its inhabitants is an excellent way to practise new language skills acquired in class. The school will also help you to organise some weekend excursions to places like Boston, Washington DC, Philadelphia or Niagara Falls.
