Located on 38th Street in Midtown Manhattan, our TEFL training center in New York shares the neighborhood with those skyscrapers which have made New York a legendary place in the world. Our school features accredited 120-Hour TEFL Certification programs that are accepted by schools around the world, including the highest paying, conservative educational institutions in South Korea or in countries of the Middle East.
The school has two classrooms of different sizes. It is accommodated in one of the tall Manhattan buildings with elevators and coffee shop. Besides covering the theory that a teacher needs to know, our trainees teach actual ESL students daily over a period of three weeks. They come to our school. Teaching practice with students of different proficiency levels (beginning, intermediate and advanced learners) is followed by immediate feedback and evaluation as well as additional review of theory or teaching techniques to improve our trainees’ performance. With an MA TESOL and years of international teaching experience, we provide for training staff that is able to bring out the best in our trainees.
We have a proven track record of graduating superbly trained English teachers who are hired by the very best schools in the world. Our secret to success is small classes that allow for individual attention, our sincere belief in training quality and a deep love for the teaching profession.

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.
