What our students say about us

I chose English Outdoors because I also wanted to visit the city, and it is a good mix between learning English and visiting Manhattan and Brooklyn.
I like the concept, it is great to be outside and not always in a classroom especially with the great weather in NYC. It is also a good way to learn more about the city and an opportunity to go to places where I maybe wouldn’t have been to without the school.

2 weeks in Brooklyn and BSL, New York!

English Outdoors

We can start conversation casually on the way to the location of the class. Also various places have different history and conditions which give us some stimulation.

Yusuke Hashimoto

You sometimes talk about the place where we are, the events that happen while we are here. We wouldn’t do that in a regular classroom.

Our Classes

Very good mix of skills, challenging but still entertaining. In one week I can already see some improvement in terms of new vocab and how to use it.

Kristina Endres

I like the small groups. We speak a lot about different kind of topics, the course is very dynamic and spontaneous.

Our Housing

I had the best host family you ever could wish. My host mum spent a lot of time to make everything clean, and the food was delicious! They are so nice when you arrive, it’s like I never left my home in Belgium. Now she’s my American mom!
