English in NYC
for Children, Teens and Adults
Central to the Hi-New-York ethos is the belief that language is a window into a culture. As our students fish on the East River or take part in a cooking class at a NYC farm, they not only learn the English that is being used around them, but they also come closer to becoming true New Yorkers!
At Hi-New-York, we focus on oral communication. For many of our students, this part of the English language is difficult to master at home, especially since English words are often not pronounced as they are written like in many other languages. We believe that learning how to communicate naturally in English requires on-site practice and on-the-spot correction, and we work with our students toward a step-change improvement in their communication skills.
