LA + NYC: Fun Things to Do in June!

Did you know that the best way to learn a language is to use the language? It’s true! Exploring your city and interacting with native speakers will help your speaking skills skyrocket. Whether you are in LA or NYC and looking for a volunteer experience, a movie screening, or new free activities, ESN is here to help you. Check out The ESL School at NYFA’s event calendar for unique things to do in and around the exciting epicenters of all things cool: LA and NYC.

June is the start of summer. Angelenos enjoy concerts under the stars at the famous Hollywood Bowl and rooftop movie screenings throughout LA. Manhattanites also enjoy time out on rooftops and riding bikes as the weather starts to warm up a bit. The month of June is also African-American Music Appreciation Month, National Camping Month, and National Audiobook Month, and June 13 is also National Cupcake Lover’s Day!
