SPEAK! (...and read ...and write)

All English students want to improve their speaking. And if you come to NYEA, your speaking will definitely improve. But our student-centered, immersive English program is also perfect for students who want focused, high-quality English Language instruction in all four major skill areas: speaking, listening, reading and writing.

Our courses incorporate top notch teaching methodology to improve pronunciation, vocabulary, grammar and conversational skills.

But your new English skills are not meant to stay in the classroom! You have to use your language in real-life, native speaking environments. 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!
