I really liked Brooklyn and my school, I feel like I was in a movie!

A local, independent school with a family atmosphere and personal attention for every student.

Our school offers modern classrooms, a small communal kitchen area, free internet access and Wi-Fi and stunning views of Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn. Our classes are small (max 10 students) to ensure students receive the best possible language learning experience.

The school is situated in the heart of Brooklyn Heights, just 5 minutes walk from the famous Brooklyn Promenade which looks out over Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge. There are a wide range of shops, restaurants and bars all within a few minutes' walk of the school, and the nearest subway stop, serving the 2, 3, 4, 5 and R lines, is right outside the school entrance. Brooklyn School of Languages is just 1 subway stop from Manhattan.

Our housing options include host families, a year-round shared student house and a summer student residence. Being in Brooklyn, we are able to offer affordable housing close to the school. We have carefully selected our host families based on their levels of pastoral care shown to our students.

Learn English at the Brooklyn School of Languages and be part of a real New York community!

Bedford–Stuyvesant shared student house

20 minutes from school on public transport
Minimum age — 18
No meals

Our BSL shared student house is located in Bedford–Stuyvesant, also known as Bed-Stuy for short. It is a neighborhood of 153,000 inhabitants in the north central portion of Brooklyn. Recently, the neighborhood has seen substantial change as young professionals and artists are moving in and new restaurants, bars and businesses crop up to cater to them. You can find a selection of stores, bars and restaurants on avenues such as Lewis, Bedford and Marcus Garvey. It's a diverse neighborhood, with tons of commercial activity and residents of all ages and ethnicities.

You can spend a sunny afternoon or fall evening relaxing in Fulton park, or take a stroll through the BedStuy historic district, which comprises several blocks of beautiful old brownstone houses. The area has one of the largest amounts of original Victorian architecture in the country. With over 6,000 buildings built before 1913, it is a unique and historically close-knit neighborhood in the heart of Brooklyn, with some inimitable tree-lined streets, and abundant architectural and economic history. All of this is just 25-

35 minutes to Manhattan by subway.

The house has 6 large bedrooms on the 1st and 2nd floors, 3 bathrooms, 2 seating areas, a large communal kitchen, and a large backyard. You will share the common areas of the house (bathrooms, kitchen, backyard) with 1 or 2 other BSL students as well as other guests, and will have full access to the equipped kitchen to cook your own meals. The house manager lives with her family on the ground floor and basement.
