Our partner school offers a cutting-edge approach towards language learning and immersion: outdoor lessons in amazing venues showcasing the best of NYC! You'll follow a similar structure to regular language courses in terms of materials (course books, technology, whiteboards…), homework and continuous assessment – while adding an extra dose of cultural insights!
Locations alternate between Brooklyn and Manhattan's best parks and gardens, and have been carefully selected based on comfort and accessibility. If it’s not possible to hold lessons outdoors, they will take place in the school’s Language Centre. With experienced teachers, small groups (max. 8 students), and NYC as the setting, these courses guarantee swift and fun language progress!

Testimonials
Helen Barke
Helen Barke

Until now, the 6 weeks spent in New York were the best of my life! The city, the people and of course the gastronomy deserve a 100% positive satisfaction. When you stay for such a long period, you do not live like a tourist. After two weeks and through taking the subway everyday, chatting with the locals in the street and living the New Yorkers’ daily life, one feels like a local. I very much recommend the Brooklyn School of Language. There, you learn to know many people and you undertake many activities with them, as well as with the school. For example: a visit of the Rockefeller Center, ice skating in the Bryant Park, visits of many museums or an evening on Times Square… New York was the happy alternative to my daily life in Germany. Not only did I learn many things but I also got to know myself! I will certainly never forget this experience. Thanks to ESL for the supervision and the optimal organization of my language stay.

Brooklyn Schools of LanguagesNew York
Duration: 11 weeks

I spent 11 weeks in New York and attended a course at the Brooklyn School of Languages. It was a beautiful experience. Being in the “calm” of Brooklyn but only a 15-minute ride to Manhattan allowed me to enjoy the Big Apple while living the real New Yorker life in Brooklyn. The school is on the 34th floor of one of the only skyscrapers in this area – the 360° view on Manhattan is mind-blowing! I couldn’t get enough! The school is small, the team is very nice and I made new friends on the first day. The school organises 2 activities per week, to discover all the different areas of New York. In class, we speak a lot because groups are pretty small, but do less grammar. Enjoy your stay in Brooklyn!

Host family
Our partner school selects its host families with special care. All live in Brooklyn, 25-45 minutes to where the classes take place – depending on the location of each class. Staying with an American family is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in their culture and practise English in everyday life situations. You will stay in a single bedroom and choose from breakfast only, half-board or just the room.

Coliving Brooklyn (2-week stays minimum)
Our partner school’s co-living houses are located in 3 different areas in Brooklyn: the up-and-coming neighbourhood of Bushwick in northern Brooklyn, trendy and lively Williamsburg, and the popular area of Downtown Brooklyn.
All of the houses are new and fully furnished. They include several comfortable communal areas such as kitchens, living rooms and co-working spaces. If you choose to stay at the Williamsburg or Downtown Brooklyn co-living houses, you’ll enjoy a private bedroom; while at the Bushwick house, you’ll have a choice between a private or a shared bedroom (with another occupant of the house of the same gender).
Living in a co-living house offers everything you need to enjoy the New York lifestyle: a safe and comfy home, a sociable and fun environment, and a great location! You won’t even have to worry about bringing your own towels or cleaning during your stay – everything is provided!

Coliving Manhattan
Please contact us for further information on this accommodation option.

The school will take you to discover amazing attractions in the area. Make sure to take advantage of the free tours organised by the school to off-the-beaten-track places you may otherwise miss! Explore the Brooklyn Flea Market, meet amazing people, grab one-off bargains and taste international food at every corner. Brooklyn offers intense nightlife, alternative clubs and friendly bars, perfect for a night out. If you decide to spend the night in Manhattan, be sure to cross the famous Brooklyn Bridge and see the sun set behind the skyscrapers. There are so many things to explore and enjoy in the city that never sleeps, so get ready for an incredible language study stay in the USA!
