Our Intensive Programs focus on all English language skills and are excellent academic preparation for college, graduate school, or career. You can decide to study in either the morning or the afternoon. In addition to studying English writing, reading, listening, and speaking, you will be able to choose an elective to help you in a specific skill area – grammar, pronunciation, and test preparation are some examples. If you complete the highest level in the program, you will not be required to submit an IELTS or TOEFL score with your undergraduate application to any CUNY school.
We believe learning goes beyond the walls of a classroom. We offer many on-campus learning opportunities, including book clubs, conversation groups, and writing tutors. We also organize trips to art museums, baseball games, Broadway shows, and so much more. Not only will you develop your skills in English, you will make friendships and memories with people from all over the world. Let New York City be your classroom.
