Study at Manhattan Language

Our mission is to provide English language training programs that are focused, accessible and affordable - all in a friendly, supportive learning environment that familiarizes our students with authentic New York culture.

Manhattan Language uses the Communicative Approach in all of its language courses. Students speak only English from the first day. Our classes are lively and focus on real communication. This makes learning English an interactive, rewarding and enjoyable experience.

Small classes mean more personal attention for each student. Students improve quickly with many opportunities to communicate with classmates and their instructors. Manhattan Language courses are taught by carefully selected, university-trained, professional language instructors. They are always native speakers of English.

Our teachers and staff are university-educated, multi-cultural individuals with very diverse backgrounds. We are all certified English language professionals with at least one year of teaching experience, and we are all native speakers of English. We have masters degrees in Business Administration, TESOL and even Gender and Cultural Studies. But we are much more than that. We are musicians and artists, writers and performers. We have all lived overseas and most of us speak two, and even three, different languages. We are, therefore, sensitive to the experience of living and studying overseas.
