How and Where Will You Be Taught?

Travelling and Learning

Spend your next holiday in the USA and learn English at the same time. An increasing number of people are confirming that the best way to learn a language is to spend time in the country where the language is spoken. This improves the learning process and speeds it up enormously. With the MSA language courses, you can connect course activities to daily experiences in English. Here you will experience vividly how the New Yorkers use the language. Apart from the English lessons, there will be plenty of opportunities to interact with native speakers outside the classroom. In terms of learning a language, it is priceless. You will enjoy this advantage, no matter whether you stay a week or a whole year with us.

Our Teaching Method

For the past 27 years, ALCC has developed a highly effective teaching method for English as a Second Language. With the ALCC-METHOD, learning English is simple and fun. All of our activities are conducted in English – because that’s the quickest way to learn a foreign language. Our course participants come from all over the world. That is why you have no choice: You have to speak English in order to understand yourself with them! With the ALCC ENGLISH METHOD, practical and conversation exercises are used to teach the students grammatically correct English. With our method, you will learn the necessary knowledge to study at American universities and colleges, as well as to take part in educational programmes. Furthermore, by teaching students this essential knowledge, we offer them the chance to get a better job or a promotion, and we help them to overcome difficulties in their daily life in the USA.

Teaching Staff

At the moment, there are more than 90 instructors at ALCC. All of our teaching staff are experienced, highly qualified professionals. They have studied in the USA and have achieved at least a Bachelor degree, many of them even a Master’s degree. Six “Educational Directors” are responsible for maintaining the teaching standard at ALCC. They supervise the services of the ALCC teaching staff constantly in order to guarantee the consistency of the teaching approach.

The Students

Course participants at ALCC perfectly embody the international atmosphere that permeates New York. People from all five continents come here to learn English. Here you will always meet people from the most different countries, which means that you will not only learn English, but also have the unique opportunity to learn the culture of your fellow students. In the ALCC classrooms we distribute evenly the amount of people who are in the USA to learn English and those who are learning English to better handle their daily life in New York.
