TEFL in New York / TESOL in New York
Our training center is located in Midtown Manhattan—just steps away from Times Square–in the vibrant heart of the City. From the center, you can easily access other parts of New York by bus or subway in less than 15 or 20 minutes.
Our training location offers all conveniences students expect. They have access to phone, fax, computers, Internet, a projector, a printer, a copy machine, a coffee machine, and a TV and DVD player. Our training groups are small, about 10 individuals. You are sure to get the attention you expect in such a program. With an experienced, highly qualified professional at their side, our trainees will quickly progress from initial theory classes to practical teaching. The amount of classes they teach will allow them to become comfortable with entering a classroom in a short time. Daily individual and group evaluations will give each trainee the necessary feedback to improve his/her performance.
Classes for our TEFL trainees consist of immigrants to the U.S. They are working adults. Those individuals come to the institute daily to be taught. Many of them arrived from Central or South America and Europe and speak little or no English. There are also advanced English classes available for teaching practice. Our ESL students usually get attached to our trainees and don’t like to see them leave after the four-week training is completed.
What is all work without play? Very often, TEFL trainees spend their free time together. They quickly create friendships that last beyond the time they spend at the institute. They usually explore New York City together, go shopping, go to the movies, and/or spend some time to experience nightlife.

New York is home to the largest African American population and the second largest Asian American population in the United States. In addition, it accommodates the largest Puerto Rican, Dominican and Jamaican American populations in the continental United States.
New York is just like a united nation, and it is also the most diverse city in the United States. Many of international students and immigrants move to New York every year, so teaching English in New York is one of the most interesting jobs because the teacher experiences different people with different ethnic backgrounds every day. Teaching English in New York gives you more than just teaching. It is a whole new experience.
New York offers many teaching opportunities for the EFL/ESL teacher. Most of our graduates find jobs rather quickly in either teaching general or business English. One week or two weeks of intensive search is not uncommon to land a job.
Salaries may range from $16 to $50/hour depending on the type of English you teach.
New York City, arguably the world’s most vibrant and exciting metropolis, stretches across five boroughs. Each one of them has its own identity. In 1898 Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens and Staten Island were consolidated in what we refer to as New York City today.
Manhattan, home to the most recognizable sites, dominates popular perception of New York City. New York’s first district remains its most historic. Wall Street investment banks coexist with landmarks like Trinity Church. Battery Park draws people for its panoramic views. The World Trade Center was also one of the area’s most popular destinations, until its tragic destruction on September 11, 2001, which took the lives of many New Yorkers and affected the entire nation.
Harlem, the national epicenter of African-American culture, is known for its jazz clubs and Southern restaurants. Once home to massive factories, artists moved to Tribeca and Soho and transformed the area into a bustling urban mecca. Galleries, designer shops, sophisticated restaurants and trendy bars followed soon after. Asian restaurants, grocery stores and trinket shops line the ever-crowded streets of Chinatown. Dim Sum and other favorites attract diners on practically every corner, especially on famous Mott Street. Frank Sinatra, Italian restaurants and kitsch draw tourists to the lively neighborhood of Little Italy surrounding Mulberry Street. The Feast of San Gennaro still welcomes its throngs, but the neighborhood is fast becoming surrounded by nearby Chinatown.
As the name implies, Midtown is smack in the middle of everything. Publishing houses, financial firms, import/export companies and fashion houses–all do business here. Trump Tower entices shoppers, along with all those glorious stores along Fifth Avenue. Ice skaters enjoy themselves at Rockefeller Center and the majestic St. Patrick’s Cathedral offers serenity and spirituality.
The massive borough of Brooklyn stretches from festive Coney Island to elegant Brooklyn Heights. It can boast of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the gorgeous bridge that bears the borough’s name, the Brooklyn Museum, and an ever-growing restaurant scene.
From Flushing to Astoria, Queens is experiencing a quiet renaissance, as refugees from Manhattan’s high rents continue to discover what this working-class borough offers its residents. Inexpensive ethnic restaurants can be found throughout the borough. Queens is also home to the Museum of the Moving Image and Flushing Meadows Corona Park.
The Bronx boasts the Yankees, one of the nation’s finest zoos, and an extraordinary Botanical Garden.
NEW YORK WEATHER
New York is attractive in every season. The region’s climate is affected by its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. Winters are usually cold. Temperatures below 0° F (-18° C) occur rarely. The streets are clear of snow a greater portion of the season. Springs are mild, averaging in the 50s° F (10 to 15° C) in late March to the lower 80s° F (26-28° C) in early June. Summers in New York are hot and humid, with temperatures commonly exceeding 90° F (32° C), although high temperatures above 100° F (38° C) are about as rare as subzero (F) lows in winter. Autumns are comfortable in New York and similar to spring in temperature. However, the weather is notably unpredictable and sometimes requires several layers of clothing in late fall and in the early spring months (e.g., November, March, April) as temperatures fluctuate rapidly at these times of year.
