Join us on campus in New York City (NYC) for our innovative program that connects the classroom to the real world, focusing on the English you will need to communicate effectively in academic, business, or personal settings. In our affordable classes, we use current technology tools to talk about today’s news; help you write clear, organized emails and essays; and improve your comprehension of everything from movies, conversations and lectures. Our methods – like our materials – are new and fresh, and will help you achieve your goals.
Our office is open in Marillac 210 on the Queens campus during regular business hours (Monday–Thursday, 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m. and Friday, 8:30 a.m.–3 p.m.).
We can be contacted at [email protected] or +1-718-990-6845 and we are happy to schedule appointments with any of our staff members as needed.
Our ESL courses reach beyond listening, speaking, reading and writing. They incorporate online activities, such as reading news articles, watching news reports, viewing YouTube and movie clips, writing e-mails and sharing opinions on a blog or social networking site.
