Located in the heart of Manhattan, this large campus provides modern college facilities in a typical university environment. The classes take place in the morning, which leaves plenty of time for sports and cultural activities in the afternoons and in the evenings. In this relaxed atmosphere, qualified teachers will follow your progress and motivate you to learn and speak English, as you make friends with all the other international students. The campus is safe and its exceptional location will allow you to explore THE place to be: New York, a city that you will get to visit most days of the week with your teachers and classmates.

Passport info
If you are of Swiss or European nationality, no visa is necessary to participate in the programme, insofar as you are in possession of a valid biometric passport which is valid for at least six months following your return date, in accordance with current legislation. Nevertheless, students need to get an electronic travel authorisation, to be completed online a minimum of one week prior to departure (credit card necessary to pay for US administration file handling fees). Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.

Flight info
New York is a great destination for a language study trip abroad. However, you must know that the journey to get there is relatively long with, generally, one stopover, depending on which city you are flying from. Most airline companies will be able to offer you an accompaniment service; therefore do not hesitate to contact us for further information. It is necessary, however, that the student feels capable of managing this long journey. Then, all he/she has left to do is to enjoy American life!

My trip to NY was really unbelievable! The campus (Queens) was really beautiful, we lived in a TV series! I had extraordinary encounters with students of many different nationalities. The understanding with Amy, the director and staff of the school was awesome! I thank ESL for the two best weeks of my life.
