The Hi-New-York teen classes stimulate the students to learn English in real-life situations while on field trips to landmark NYC venues.
These programs give families a flavor of living in NYC and encourage all to speak in English with each other, at least while they are with us!
Central to the Hi-New-York ethos is the belief that language opens the window into a culture. As our students go fishing on the East River or take part in a Civil War bugle call, they not only learn the English language that is being used around them; they also come closer to becoming true New Yorkers! The Hi-New-York English language camp uses the Cambridge Exam for Young Learners as the foundation, focusing on oral communication. For many of our students, this is a part of the English language that is difficult to master at home. English words are often not pronounced as they are written, and the only way to learn how to speak naturally is through practice and correction.
Back in Brazil, the girls' teachers were amazed at their English after the NY visit. They said it is impressive how much more confident they are, especially Giovanna. She is risking so much more now. You have done a great job with the kids. Carolina, Brazil
