Times Square, Broadway and the Theater District

The Theater District takes its name from the fact that it has many theaters, cinemas, hotels and entertainment venues. Time Square is named after the location of the former New York Times headquarters.

It's one of Manhattan's most vibrant neighborhoods. The Broadway theaters and a large number of advertising neon or giant screens have made it a symbol of New York.

If you like to go shopping, this is not what is missing in Times Square!

I truly recomend Manhattan language,it is a great school with a good organizations and good teachers.i really enjoyed the time that i have passed with them. More than just a school it is like a big family, and it is always productive and fun to study in a comfortable and family like environment. Concerning education they have all kind of teacher and all of them are "weird" and for the majority it makes them special. Right now i am a college student, like i said before the service is special, I am grateful to them because they helped me a lot through the process of getting in. You may not trust me ,but at least you should try and see.

I highly recommend Manhattan Language as an English school in New York City. I especially enjoyed the Business English course with Anthony. The teacher is very knowledgeable and has nice experiences working with different countries and cultures. I highly recommend taking this class if you are a business student, a doctor, or anyone doing international business relations. I learned a lot of useful information from this class that I can apply in my work. It was interesting to learn about doing business with different countries. Also, the location of the school is great. It is in the center of the city and close to everything. Thanks to all at Manhattan Language for this experience!

I'm very careful and meticulous, so I didn't want to decide a school before I actually viewed one. However, I had to for my Visa application. I looked at so many websites, maybe more than 50, to find a school, and I noticed that Manhattan Language had a great reputation and was highly recommended. And now I can say that those it is true and my decision to choose Manhattan Language was right. I would like to talk especially about my teachers. Every teacher has the passion to encourage us to perform our best. Their professional and positive attitude inspires us not only in academic enrichment, but also in our view of life. I really appreciate them. For many people, of course , including me, studying abroad is challenging. Also, life in a big city like NY is very tough, so when I had just moved, I was vulnerable. But all the kind staff, teachers and other students helped me out. Although Improving English is not easy, I will just keep studying with them until I'm satisfied with my English ability!

Working at Manhattan Language was a fantastic experience that I will never forget. It was great to work with such an experienced, passionate, knowledgable, and funny group of people. The owner works hard to create a strong sense of community among students and employees, and that's exactly what she has done. I appreciated the autonomy given to teachers to be creative and teach the material in the way they believe is most effective. The management was very supportive and listened to the concerns of employees.
