Right next to the Empire State Building, our partner school welcomes you on the 7th floor of a modern and attractive art-deco building on 5th Avenue. There, in the heart of bustling Manhattan, you will study English together with students coming from the four corners of the world. Easily reachable by public transport, the school offers excellent facilities: 17 modern classrooms equipped with interactive whiteboards, a library, a digital language laboratory, free Wi-Fi connection, a student bookshop, a self-access centre, computers and a canteen. To relax after class and have lunch, you will also take advantage of the Student Café and Lounge, designed exclusively for the students of the school. In this stimulating atmosphere, you will make rapid progress under the guidance of experienced and motivated teachers. You will be placed in a small group (max. 12 students) according to your level, which will allow you to receive the necessary support and attention for quick and effective learning. And after class, you will dive into the fascinating world of the Big Apple with your new friends, either on your own or during the activities organised by the school. Greenwich Village, Times Square, Central Park, 5th Avenue and its countless boutiques: all these mythical places will be close at hand!

Es war sehr schön einen solch internationalen Kurs zu besuchen, da man auch viel über andere Länder gelernt hat. Meine Freunde und ich haben immer sehr gutes gesundes Essen in unserer Gastfamilie bekommmen und die Familie war wirklich immer äußerst freundlich und zuvorkommend. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt in der Familie sehr genossen.

Ich würde sagen JEIN, die Lage der Schule ist top, eine Lehrerin war ebenfalls top, der 2. Lehrer eher mittelmässigKomischerweise wurden alle Leute mit denen ich den ersten Tag verbrachte im selben Sprachniveau eingestuft obwohl es deutliche Unterschiede gab.Ich kam in eine Gruppe mit lauter 20-jährigen mit teilweise sehr schlechten Manieren und ohne MotivationDie Lehrerin meinte am ersten Tag ich werde mich langweilen weil ich weiter als die anderen bin!Der Flughafentransfer war 3x so teuer als ein Taxi und hatte 2 Stunden Verspätung, erst nach 2 anrufen kam überhaupt jemand Ein paar sehr unhöfliche Leute waren in der Klasse, auch jemand der offensichtlich nur sehr langsam lernte und den Fortschritt bremstder Mix der Nationalitäten war sehr gut, aber die Schulkollegen waren im Schnitt 15 Jahre jünger als ich was für mich nicht ideal istWir hatten eine großartige Lehrerin und einen mittelmässigen. Das Lerntempo war mir deutlich zu langsam tlw. Frau Coutain war teilweise sehr unfreundlich und ungehalten wenn man sie nicht auf Anhieb verstand. Zimmer war sauber aber außer Bett bot dies nichts (wie zb Fernseher). W-Lan konnte ich erst auf Nachfrage nutzen, davon war sie nicht begeistert. Gespräche waren sehr schwierig wegen dem Slang der Dame und weil sie auch bei höflichen Anfragen sofort zu schimpfen begann...Auf Anfrage wurde mir 1 Handtuch unter Protest ausgehändigt.Als Frühstück wurde Toastbrot mit Marmelade angeboten und Bananen. Da ich ohnehin alleine hätte frühstücken müssen ging ich dafür stets in die Stadtin der Wohngegend fühlte ich mich auch nur teilweise wohl

St Giles InternationalNew York
Duration: 2 weeks

My stay in New York was short but intense! The city that never sleeps offers a thousand things to see. As for the school, it was very well located (walking distance to the Empire State Building) and offered quality teaching. The small groups allow students to improve their skills very quickly. The team is very nice and helpful. Furthermore, the activities organized by the school are varied and very affordable. I recommend it!

St. Giles International, New York
Duration: 30 weeks

This has been such an incredible new experience for me… it’s surpassed my expectations and I’m hardly ever home! I’m really liking the course at St. Giles International. My teacher is pretty energetic which is really nice because it livens up the class and helps you feel less embarrassed to speak up.

New York offers so many cultural and entertainment options. I participate in as many of the activities organised by the school as I can; for example, we went to the Atlanta Braves vs. New York Mets baseball game, and I thought it was something interesting and different.

Host Family
Experience the American way of life in a family from New York! You’ll have 3 host-family options: with the standard one, you’ll live around 35-60 minutes away from the school by public transports and stay in a single room with shared bathroom; if you want a private bathroom, you’ll have to choose the “superior” option, while with the “suburban” one you’ll stay 45-75 minutes away from the school. If you travel with a friend, a twin room is more convenient.

In the trendy area of Herald Square, a 15-minute walk from the school, this residence with 24-hour security offers single bedrooms with private bathrooms and high-speed Wi-Fi.
