English school in New York SoHo

The busy streets of this colorful Lower Manhattan neighborhood are alive with fashionable boutiques, avant-garde art studios and funky bars

Our New York SoHo school

You’ll still find reminders of SoHo’s 19th Century industrial past in its dramatic cast-iron facades and zig-zagging fire escapes. But this former network of foundries and factories, is now a paradise for students, fashionistas and art-lovers, thanks to the nearby New York University and the trendy bars, clubs, and designer stores you’ll find between the old iron columns.

  • Housed in a grand 19th Century building (complete with original iron work!) with a modern interior, our English school is on New York’s famous theater street, Broadway, which runs along the northern edge of SoHo
  • Located on a transport hub with bus and rail connections to all five boroughs of New York – and within walking distance of Midtown via Broadway
  • Offers a popular Intensive Business English Course for students seeking to communicate effectively in a professional English environment
  • Holds monthly themed parties to build community and celebrate a Student of the Month
