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!

Die Sprachschule ist sehr gut organisiert und bietet den Sprachschülern abwechslungsreiches Programm an!Die Schule ist super zentral gelegen.Das Land, tja, es ist Amerika, was kann man da sagen... Wir hatten einen Haupt-Klassenlehrer der war echt gut, das heisst, er konnte gut unterrichten, erklären, aufzeigen, Beispiele bringen, abwechslungsreichen Unterricht halten, war immer pünktlich, interessiert, begeistert, motiviert zu unterrichten etc. So sollte ein Sprachlehrer sein. Hingegen hatten wir noch einen zweite Lehrperson, diese war schlecht; kam zu spät, keine Motivation, kein Interesse, unvorbereitet etc. Ich habe dies der Haupt-Lehrperson auch mal mitgeteilt. Danach war die Lehrperson wieder vermehrt pünktlich, mehr änderte sich leider nicht. Schade, denn ansonsten war die St.Giles Schule sehr gut. Aber durch diese zweite Lehrperson, gab das einen faden Nachgeschmack.

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.
