What our students say

  • I definitely recommend EC New York because there are very expert teachers and I had a very good time with them. The groups are small and the teacher can pay attention to you easily. They have a different way to teach English that is fun and quick. I also like all the different activities that you can do in just a day.There are so many things to do and time flies in New York!There are a lot of nationalities and you can meet people from all around the world at EC New York.

  • New York is a great city and you can do what ever you want, there is something for every taste. You can enjoy the nature in Central Park, you can go shopping, walk near the Hudson River, see a musical and more.

    I like the teachers because they are really motivated. You can have fun and learn at the same time. There are many students so you make friends. The classrooms are nice and I like my class. My accommodation was near the school, Times Square, and the Empire State Building. I would come back to EC New York again.

  • I would recommend EC New York for the following reasons: professional, precise, high quality teachers and functional structures. I like the high profile teachers and straight to the point lessons. In NY city you feel like a dot in the universe but you feel free to move and do everything in an easy way.

Learning

At EC New York, there are 3 timetable options when studying General, Semi-Intensive and Intensive lessons. During busy periods, we use an alternative timetable, called double-banking. Alongside your classes, we also provide the following support to help you learn:

  • Lecture Series: Practice listening and note-talking skills in a real-life setting with a teacher or another native English speaker.
  • Pronunciation Clinic: Choose from ’general’ pronunciation clinics for all students and clinics target at specific accents.
  • Conversation Class: Join a group conversation with a teacher or native English speaker to discuss an issue of interest.
  • Exam Skills: Learn the skills that will help improve your exam scores.
  • I believe my role as a teacher depends on my ability to simplify so as to motivate; to clarify, so as to help students navigate the challenges of learning a new language as it is told from an American perspective. The Joy in teaching language come from the joy in engaging an international community with this rich-American heritage.

    The best part of EC New York is its location, which stands at the center of one of the world's greatest cosmopolitans; it is an exciting as it is riped with stories, waiting to unfold for each one of EC Language's students. As an ESL teacher, having taught for two years, I try to equip students, to the best of my ability, with the language tools needed to share each one of their authentic New York and American experiences in a clear, comprehensible, and authentic manner.

  • The ESL classroom is a rich, dynamic experience, and I constantly marvel at how the magic of New York City brings learning to a whole new level. Beyond the classroom, our EC students discover the array of opportunities here – exotic new dishes, exclusive museum tours, famous operas, and Broadway shows. Here they also uncover unique little treasures off the beaten path – small black box theaters, street and subway performances, and one-time lecture opportunities, among so many more. The Big Apple boasts a classroom like no other.

  • Teaching English at EC is exciting, challenging and different every day. The process of teaching and learning English is not always easy, but it is incredibly rewarding. There is nothing better than walking down the hallway of our school and overhearing students from opposite sides of the world conversing in English and using something they learned from my class! It is gratifying and inspirational to facilitate communication and learning. In such a global atmosphere, I learn as much as I teach every day at EC.
