Our Junior ESL summer program is designed for students aged 14 to 17 years old to learn English in New York. It is an immersion program including general English lessons, full board accommodation in shared rooms in host families, as well as a full program of supervised activities and excursions.

The English lessons takes place at St Francis College, located in the heart of Brooklyn Heights, 2 minutes' walk from our year-round English Language school.

There are 3 subway stations and 8 subway lines accessible within a 3-minute walk.

The course includes 20 lessons (= 15 hours) of general English per week taking place Monday to Friday between 9:30am and 12.45pm. Our teachers are qualified, experienced and use an action-based, communicative method to encourage students to interact and use the language as much as possible, both in and out of class. There is a maximum of 15 students per class, grouped together according to level. Course materials are included (teachers use textbooks as well as authentic materials such as magazines, newspapers articles...)

Our activity program is designed to include the best of New York City and alternate between fun and educational outings. There are 5 half-day excursions and 1 full-day excursion per week (except the last week when Saturday is departure day).

Students stay in twin rooms with another BSL student of the same gender but different nationality, and share the bathroom with the family members. Breakfast is included at home every morning, then students make their way to school together by public transport. They also get back home together by public transport in the evenings. Lunches will be at St Francis College on weekdays, and a packed lunch will be prepared for the Saturday excursion.

Amazing School

Studying at the Brooklyn School of Languages was a wonderful experience. The teachers are great and the school is small and familiar. Everyone knows each other and it's easy to make new friends. You'll never be bored during the lessons and a lot of activities are organised in the afternoons. I studied at this school for 7 weeks and the time flew... I would have stayed there forever!

Wonderful experience

I strongly recommend BSL. Actually its not only a school, it's like a big family. I spent 7 weeks there, it was my first time in NYC (and abroad) and I didn't speak at all at the beginning.
Thanks to The differents teachers I could improve a lot my English. Teachers are very comprehensive and helpful if you have any questions about NY. What is more, I also met lots of nice guys who came from differents countries.
If you go there, enjoy the view ;)
