Students learn filmmaking alongside English as a second language
The New York Film Academy has designed unique English courses that use film as a teaching tool for students who want to attend the Academy's world-renowned visual arts or performance programs, but must first enhance and expand their English language skills. Nonetheless, these English language courses are open to all students, whether or not they choose to continue to their studies at the Academy in other programs.

There is no better place to enhance your English language skills than the New York Film Academy. Centrally located in Manhattan on the East Coast, the New York Film Academy offers tremendous opportunity to explore urban American culture. Optional weekend excursions will take students to sites such as the Statue of Liberty and the shops of SoHo.

The courses have been created with the specific needs of our students in mind. Each course is six-weeks in length, 25 hours of class per week, and taught by qualified and friendly English teachers. Each level emphasizes listening, speaking, reading and writing, with additional time focused on grammar, accent reduction and relevant vocabulary.

Our experienced teachers lead classes in English for students from all parts of the world. Students are able to progress through beginning, intermediate and advanced levels. Each student's language skills will be pre-evaluated to determine the appropriate level of study. Upon successful completion of each course, students are awarded a Certificate.
