Taalcursus in hartje NY

St Giles is een talenschool midden in hartje New York! Ik begon met zoeken naar talenscholen in NYC en al snel kwam ik bij EF uit, maar die school zit ver van Manhatten, dus dat was voor mij al geen optie. Al snel kwam ik bij St Giles, ik stuurde een e-mail en binnen no time had ik al een persoonlijk mailtje terug. De communicatie verliep op dat moment al heel soepel en persoonlijk, waardoor ik al een goed gevoel had. Eenmaal aangekomen op de school en het is geweldig! Goede, gezellige en leuke leraren en leuke mede leerlingen. Je zit nooit met meer dan 12 personen in een klas, waardoor je veel persoonlijke aandacht krijgt. Daarnaast organiseert de school veel activiteiten, zoals het bezoeken van basketbal en baseball games (voor een leuke prijs) en ook etentjes en happy hours waardoor je veel andere studenten leert kennen. De school zit op de fifth avenue, preciest naar de Empire State Building, dus na school kan je van alles doen in de stad. Ik ben zelf al vaker met verschillende taalscholen geweest, maar St Giles is wel één van de best.

St. Giles NY

I have been in New York since 5 months now and I had a nice experience. I took preparation classes for the FCE exam and the TOEFL.
The school is good located in the middle of Manhattan. The teacher are motivated and friendly. The only disadvantage is the bad internet connection in the building, but if you have an internet plan, which is affordable in NY, you have any problems.
I highly recommend St. Giles for foreign language learners.

St Giles review

I took the TOEFL course there and it was a great experience. First, its location is very convenient, next to Empire State Building, midtown Manhattan. It also has a good environment and students from different backgrounds. Secondly, in terms of quality and cost, it's one of the best schools in New York. The teachers are friendly and lenient. They really help you to reach your goals. Attendance is also very strict and you shouldn't miss classes. It also has several social programs every week which could help you socialize and make friends.

The best of school in NYC

It's a great experience. I'm happy studying English at St Giles. The teachers are helpful. My English is getting better than before. I was looking for a new school. I went to a few school directly, but finally I extended the school. I think the balance of teacher quality, cost, student quality, location etc is the best. The teacher provide homework every day, attendance is also strict. If you want teachers check a writing, they will check these and advice. A person who want to improve English seriously, it's good environment. In addition some teacher are friendly, they go to hung out with students.
