Before your class
Your teacher will set up a pre-class assignment with relevant questions for you to discuss on Teams with your classmates (in English!). This assignment can be anything from a reading or listening from your course book, a relevant video or article, or a Flashpoint from EC Online. Your conversations will be monitored by your teacher and progress recorded online.
During your class
You'll collaborate via video with small groups of 4-8 students from around the world and your teacher where you’ll outline your objectives and goals, discuss the questions and task from the pre-class assignment, review any questions and set up the post-class collaborative activity as well as the pre-class assignment for the next day.
After your class
You'll be asked to work on an English writing or speaking post-class collaboration activity which you will upload on Teams. Just like with the pre-class assignment, you can discuss virtually with your classmates and your English teacher can monitor the chat, giving feedback and error-correction where necessary.
On the General English course, you attend a core of 20 lessons per week, which will give you a practical understanding of the English language and take you all the way to fluency. Your confidence will improve as teachers train you in all four communication skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing.
Experience your chosen destination through its language. English in the City combines 20 lessons of General English with 10 lessons focused on language study inspired by your destination, for a complete intensive experience that is tailored to you and your personal reasons for learning. You will spend one lesson each week outside of the classroom with your class, visiting places of interest and engaging in activities in the local area.
This dynamic course is your gateway to practical use of English.
The school must confirm the availability of your chosen accommodation.
If the selected housing is not available for your dates, the school will offer another accommodation option for you to consider.

Stay with local English-speakers on a homestay for a cultural experience and use your English in a natural environment outside of the classroom. Some hosts have three-storey homes with several bedrooms, whilst others live in smaller apartments. All homestays are located in safe areas of the city. You may find New York is very fast paced and may notice that hosts work long hours.
Rooms have a comfortable bed and blankets, sheets, bath towels and pillows. There are storage facilities with drawers and closets with adequate hanging space. You will have a desk or table for private study, a reading lamp, a mirror, and a waste paper basket.
Additionally, you will have access to common areas such as the living room, kitchen, dining room, etc.. Some hosts may have restrictions on using the kitchen or bathroom.
It is unusual to have a washing machine in apartments. Most homes have a common laundry room in the building or there will be a laundromat nearby.
Homestays in New York are located in four boroughs: Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. EC New York also has a few homestays in some parts of New Jersey.
All homestays include breakfast. Choose the half-board option if you want to have dinner with your hosts too.
Breakfast varies from home to home. Some hosts may prepare a big breakfast with eggs, toast, bacon, fruit, coffee or tea, but most will offer something simple like toast or cereal and coffee. Other hosts prefer a "serve yourself" policy where the you can help yourself to whatever you want.
Some hosts will allow you to use the kitchen to cook your own food, but this varies from host to host.
Twin rooms must be booked by two students travelling together.
Distance to school: Between 45 and 75 minutes.
