Brooklyn is located just over the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, with its neo-gothic towers, from Manhattan. Life is different here: you're surrounded by a mosaic of communities which sharply contrast Manhattan. The area is a unique melting pot, a setting for movies, with its famous brownstone houses along tree-lined streets. Just 5 minutes’ walk from the bridge in Brooklyn Heights, our partner school welcomes you to a friendly environment. Its location, only one metro station from Manhattan, is a great asset. From the classrooms, you'll enjoy spectacular views of the most famous skyline in the world. Classes offer excellent study conditions and teachers give personal attention to each student. Facilities include free Wi-Fi. There is a wide array of shopping centres, restaurants and coffee shops to enjoy right on the doorstep.

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

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.

Lefferts Garden Student House This Student House is located in the beautiful Prospect Lefferts Gardens neighbourhood, within walking distance of Prospect Park and many cafes and shops.

Common areas are cleaned once a week.

Bedford-Stuyvesant Student House

General information

Our shared student house is located in Bedford–Stuyvesant, also known as Bed-Stuy for short. It is a neighborhood of 153,000 inhabitants in the north central portion of Brooklyn. Recently, the neighborhood has seen substantial change as young professionals and artists are moving in and new restaurants, bars and businesses crop up to cater to them. You can find a selection of stores, bars and restaurants on avenues such as Lewis, Bedford and Marcus Garvey. It's a diverse neighborhood, with tons of commercial activity and residents of all ages and ethnicities. You can spend a sunny afternoon or fall evening relaxing in Fulton park, or take a stroll through the Bed-Stuy historic district, which comprises several blocks of beautiful old brownstone houses. The area has one of the largest amounts of original Victorian architecture in the country. With over 6,000 buildings built before 1913, it is a unique and historically close-knit neighborhood in the heart of Brooklyn, with some inimitable tree-lined streets, and abundant architectural and economic history. All of this is just 25- 35 minutes to Manhattan by subway.

Lefferts Gardens Shared Student House

General information

This shared house is located in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, a charming area in southeast Brooklyn that gets its name from the combination of three nearby locations: Prospect Park, Lefferts Manor and Brooklyn Botanic Garden. It's a small and quiet neighbourhood of just under 100,000 inhabitants, and it's located within walking distance to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the Brooklyn Museum. The best part of staying in Lefferts Gardens is undoubtedly its proximity to the beautiful Prospect Park - it's only 2 blocks away! Enjoy it on a hot summer day, watch the amazing colours in fall, and stroll through the park in the snowy winter. The house is a 3-bedroom/1-bathroom apartment with an modern kitchen, a spacious living room and big bay windows. It's just 30 minutes away from Manhattan by direct subway.
