Where to Practice Foreign Languages in New York City: Our professional instructors will design tailor-made lessons that will guide you to fluency in a short time, though of course, you must also practice outside the classroom to improve and perfect your listening and speaking skills and your pronunciation. Luckily, you will find many instances to put your foreign language into play around New York. For example, you can join the NYC Language Exchange Friends, a fun group of language learners who come together to practice languages and build new friendships. The membership is free of charge and they welcome every age and level of proficiency, so the only requirement is that you want to speak in a new language! Another option is to join the Mundo Lingo NYC Meetup, a very popular language exchange group that organizes gatherings every week. At the event, you will get stickers of country flags to show what languages you speak. Then, you pair up with other people who want to practice the same language as you, so don’t be shy and join them to have some fun while putting your new language skills to use.

Where to Study Foreign Languages in New York City: Home of Broadway, Wall Street, Lady Liberty and more, New York City also boasts a world-class selection of universities. Together, they make New York City one of the most popular study destinations in the world, being home to prestigious institutions like Columbia University and the University of New York.

From the widely spoken Chinese, Dutch or French to the rarer Finnish, Hungarian or Czech, this university has language course options for everyone. And if you are not interested in studying at a university level, you can take a language course in one of the many institutions around the city. For example, our Exam Preparation course is a tailor-made program that will help you prepare to sit for an internationally accredited exam, such as the IELTS if you are studying English or DALF if you are acquiring French. No matter your goals or preferences, we are here for you!

Language Jobs in New York City: Learning a new language will also be an asset when trying to give a boost to your career in NYC. This city is one of the most powerful ones in the United States and the center for mass media, journalism, and publishing. International finance, high technology, real estate, insurance, and health care all form the basis of New York City's economy, as well. Most of the companies based in NYC are either of foreign origin or are looking to expand abroad, so learning a second or even third language will come in handy to help these businesses communicate with their partners and/or clients overseas, as well as the many aforementioned foreign-language speakers residing in and visiting the city itself. Some international companies that are always on the lookout for foreign language speakers are Citi, ABM Industries, Philip Morris, and Omnicom.

NYC is also home to many international chambers of commerce, such as the Network of Arab Professionals on 5th Avenue, the Chinese Chamber of Commerce on Bowery Street, or the French American Chamber of Commerce on Broadway Street, among dozens of others. You can get in touch with them if you have an interest in setting up your own business in another country, and you can use your new language skills to establish long-lasting business relations with the people you meet at organized events!

Language for Culture in New York City: Part of what makes New York City a great place to live is that it is a melting pot of cultures and ethnicities, and this shows in the number and variety of cultural events that take place all year round. New York City is the place to see and do everything: From Chinese zodiac arts and crafts and lively Portuguese dance performances to Japanese festivities and world-class French food, there is something for everyone. If you are studying Italian, for example, there are annual celebrations of Italian film at the Open Roads Festival and New York Italian Film Festival. And those who love the Mandarin language can visit the beautiful Chinatown, which plays a prominent role in spreading and celebrating Chinese culture, and serves as the central location of the Lunar New Year celebration, with fireworks, dragon dances, and parades. Regardless of the language you are studying, you will surely find opportunities to explore its culture. Check out the NYC Official Guide site to find a list of cultural events happening in New York City all year long.
