La atención de la agencia es buena. En mi caso, contraté 4 semanas en NY en familia, fue un gusto tratar con Marta Bernal.Lo que no me gustó nada que te repercuten todos los gastos por pagar con tarjeta de crédito en lugar de asumirlos ellos como hacen todos los comercios. Lo peor es que la edad media de la clase era muy baja para mí

« Der intensive course stellte mit seinem general und business course eine sehr gute Mischung dar. Die Anforderungen und die Art des Unterrichts war sehr unterschiedlich, das machte es interessant.Die Lehrer und Staff sind super nett und immer hilfsbereit. Bei Fragen im Unterricht, oder auch außerhalb, wurde sich immer die notwendige Zeit genommen. »

New York ist die perfekte Stadt für einen Sprachaufenthalt. Die Atmosphäre der magischen Stadt ist einzigartig. Man trifft auf Menschen aus der ganzen Welt und kann viele Dinge unternehmen. Langeweile kommt in New York nie auf. Zentrale Lage mit perfektem Ausblick auf die Stadt - Kompetente Lehrer sorgen für spannenden Unterricht - Stühle etwas unbequem - Bunter Nationenmix der nicht ganz ausgeglichen war (viele Italiener) Nette Lehrer mit spannendem Unterricht Sehr schöne Residenz in perfekter Lage - Kontakt zu anderen Studenten wird vereinfacht - nette Lounge mit Billardtischen - guter Fitnessraum - Security im Hotel sorgt für Sicherheit Eher selten Teilnahme an Aktivitäten, da vieles auch eigenwillig organisiert wurde Vielen Dank für die Organisation meiner unvergesslichen Sprachreise !

Testimonials

My language course with ESL at Kaplan Empire State Building was a rich and unforgettable experience. The courses were interesting. The teacher chose topics that were thought-provoking on an intellectual level and allowed us to work on our language skills, but also to have a real intercultural debate. The students came from Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Korea and Japan. There were people from various ages in our group, which allowed for a high intellectual level and a great atmosphere.

The Big Apple, a dream come true! First, the heart of Brooklyn, where my host family lives. Then, the Flatbush Ave tube station. A few tube stations later, I find myself in Manhattan. The school is right in the middle of Time Square, so it’s always very busy. As regards classes, the atmosphere is great, you can meet people from all over the world and the staff is excellent!

Here, everything is possible, there is so much to do that you would need to stay for at least a whole year to visit everything! I had the opportunity to see, among others, the Statue of Liberty, the MoMA, Central Park, the top of the Empire State Building, Chinatown… All the landmark places! New York is a city that moves fast, so it’s impossible to get bored here! And the Americans are open-minded and friendly, unlike what you might hear.

The food is said to be unhealthy here, but it is not that bad. There are many fastfoods, but a very wide choice! You are free to choose what you want to eat, and believe me, you can have a balanced meal if you want to.

As far as I am concerned, I fell in love with the city that never sleeps. The nightlife is also very rich. Don’t hesitate to discover this city, it is really worth it!

The school was easily reachable from my accommodation. Morning classes were focused on communication and simple grammar rules. The exercises we did were quite engaging, as they included reading and exchanging opinions within the group. The afternoon homework usually consisted in researching unknown words or sentences that we had heard or read somewhere. In the afternoon, I visited the city with my new friends. In the evening, there was always something to do: restaurants, theatres or bars. My room was good but simple. In conclusion, I can say that it was a fantastic experience that I would love to repeat.
