Located in the heart of Manhattan, this large campus provides modern college facilities in a traditional university environment. English classes take place in the morning, which leaves plenty of time for sports and cultural activities in the afternoons and evenings. In this relaxed atmosphere, highly qualified teachers will follow your progress and motivate you to learn and speak English, as you make friends with your fellow international students. The campus and language schools are safe and their great locations will allow you to explore THE place to be: New York, a city that you'll get to visit almost every day 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!

Sophia hat es sehr gut gefallen. Sie wurde gut betreut und die Lehrerin und Coordinatorin waren sehr freundlich.Der zentrale Ort fanden wir super, auch die Räumlichkeiten waren gut.Sophia würde jederzeit wieder diese Schule besuchen.Es waren aber nicht nur Kinder vom Junior Kurs in ihrer Klasse sondern auch kleinere Kinder aus dem Family Programm. Dies war ok aber vielleicht gut zu wissen für Sie.Auch hatte sie 5 Tage Schule und nicht 4 Tage (Mittwoch frei) wie zuvor von Ihnen mitgeteilt. Das war aber kein Problem.

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.

Classes and meals take place at the prestigious Barnard College. On weekdays, you'll have breakfast and lunch in the language school cafeteria, while you’ll have dinner at the residence. At weekends, all meals will be taken in the residence except when you receive a packed lunch for full day excursions. In the residence, make the most of the common rooms to relax, play cards or chat with the other participants. 24-hour supervision is provided by the school staff, who also stay in the residence, and there is a security guard at night.

The school organises varied activities daily which range from orienteering races to karaoke nights and talent shows, allowing you to enjoy nice afternoons and evenings on campus together with the other international students. You will be expertly supervised by the experienced school’s staff during your New York outings. Guided excursions will take you to discover the Empire State Building, Grand Central Station, Macy’s department store, Central Park, Ellis Island and the Natural History Museum. A visit to Wall Street, as well as a shopping trip to Soho or a pizza evening in Little Italy are also scheduled. Other activities include a trip to the Rockefeller Centre, 5th Avenue and Times Square. On Sundays, you will be able to relax with your friends on campus or take part in optional activities.
