That's why NYEA also offers a variety of optional field trips (optional) and extra-curricular academic activities that go beyond the basic tourist attractions to give students a look at the real New York. We plan trips to less well-known museum exhibits, uncover places of historical interest, visit local favorites, and give students a deeper look at New York City life!

Standard English 20: Perfect for overseas students
New York can be a confusing place for newcomers. So
NYEA has designed a special program just for them.
Not all students have the same needs. Some have been studying in
New York City for a long time, but others have only recently arrived
in the Big Apple. These students, often overseas students, are thrilled
about their new environment and looking to jump in and embrace all
the unique excitement and energy that NYC has to offer.
Standard English 20 is mostly identical to our current 18 hour per
week Standard English Program. However, it includes a BONUS
2 hours every week of specialized NYC Survival English
to help overseas students (or anyone new to NYC) navigate this sometimes
crazy, baffling and amazing city.
