Student Interview

I liked the business class very much! That was amazing! Because of the small class size we could express our individual wishes for what we wanted to learn.

Marco Saraiva  - August 2017
Class : Business English

The best way to improve your English skills is to study in an English speaking country! That’s why I decided to find a language school in the U.S. to improve my English. I am a German/Portuguese citizen and I work for an insurance company in Germany. I studied Business Administration.

I took the entire 12-week Business English course. My goal is to work for an international company. I liked the business class very much! The average class size in business was only two students. That was amazing! Because of the small class size we could express our individual wishes for what we wanted to learn. In my course, I created an individual elevator pitch, letter of application/CV, and optimized my LinkedIn profile. The instructor is a native English speaker but also a specialist in business because he worked on Wall Street.

Every day we read the daily newspaper and discussed business related articles. We also analyzed business videos on Bloomberg and CNN. In addition, we took fieldtrips to the Museum of Finance and the Federal Hall located in the Wall Street area.

The school is accredited and very professional. Before the lessons begin, there is a written and oral placement test. Every month there is an exam. Don´t worry about that! If you pay attention in your classes you will pass the exam. At the end of the program you get a professional certificate from the course for your CV! The entire staff is very smart, helpful, and professional.

To socialize with other students I participated in the Friday voluntary school activities. We visited many New York attractions. I had the opportunity to build new friendships and network with people from all over the world.

I will recommend the New York English Academy 200% in Germany and Portugal! Thank you for this experience!

It is incredible how fast it works!

Hello my name is Kadija Camara and I am 20 years old. I came to the NYEA Business course because I needed to improve my English for my bachelor’s degree. It is incredible how fast it works! Being an NYEA student will be one of my best life experiences not only because I learned English but also because of the diversity of the students I met.
