When you register for ESL Courses at EC New York, you will be welcomed to take part in a walking tour. The walking tour is held every Sunday at 14:30 in front of the school. This is a great opportunity for you to get to know the sights and attractions surrounding our school. Some of the landmarks you are going to see on your walking tour include Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. However, beyond learning about some great places in New York, the walking tour also helps students to learn some very practical things. You will learn where the nearest subway station is as well as how to determine which direction you are walking (i.e. North, South, East, or West).
The walking tour is also a great opportunity to meet other new students who will be starting their course on the same day as you. This is a great opportunity to build your connection with other students before you start. It can also help shy students to break out of their shells and practice English in a comfortable setting. All walking tours are guided by our activity leader, who is always there to help you navigate through New York and through the English language. So what are you waiting for?
