“I love NY!” That’s how most students feel after their first week at our English School in New York. Meet our friendly, experienced team and we’re confident you’ll feel the same.

Why you’ll love Embassy New York

We're close to Times Square and the Empire State Building on 7th Avenue (between 28th & 29th street).

With highly qualified teachers you'll make fast progress and our busy social programme means no two weeks are ever the same - cheer at a Yankees baseball game one week and sing along to a Broadway musical the next.

Live in Manhattan without paying a fortune at our student residence, close to leafy Central Park and the world-famous Columbia University.
