Language Study Holiday for teenagers in New York City

 

New York City is the largest city of the United State, and everything there looks disproportionate: more than 500 art galleries, around 200 museums, more than 15 theatres and 18 000 restaurants…

Our partner school in New York City helps students from all around the world to not get disconcerted by such an abundance, as well as it helps them to improve their English: the Saint Peter’s University, established during the 19th century by Jesuits, is located 15 minutes away from Lower Manhattan, and offers all the installations a student can dream of to learn and feel at ease. There’s even a swimming pool on the campus!  The language school itself is settled in a 4 story building where it organizes for the last 4 years a language study holiday in the summer. Every week, 30 to 50 students come to learn English and discover the city with their professors.

This language study holiday is aimed to teenagers from 15 and over. Its goal is to help them to improve their English skills in a good mood, but also to discover, in the company of young and dynamic teachers, New York City and the American Culture. So come and have a bite of the Big Apple!
