The adult English school is ideal for anyone who thinks they are "too old" to learn English. If you are under 30 years old, try the other school EC New York. As well as taking an active part in classroom discussions, you will work on your language skills in small groups, pairs or individually on tasks and projects. And as you learn correct English pronunciation, increase your vocabulary, work on your grammar and improve your sentence construction, you will find you become able to express yourself in an accurate and appropriate way.
