Start the New Year with Fun!

January is the start of a new year. The month symbolizes a new beginning and a chance to make resolutions. The ESL School at NYFA students are coming back from a two-week break, but don’t worry because there are plenty of great things to do and new adventures to have in LA and NYC!

Each month The ESL School at NYFA connects students with fun events around their new cities. There are cultural activities, volunteer opportunities, and film- and art-related tours. There are so many ways to practice the English we learn in class in our communities!
