There’s no better way to learn a new language than to immerse yourself in a place where it is spoken, and New York offers no shortage of exciting opportunities to learn and have fun at the same time. When fall comes and the temperature starts to cool, New Yorkers are excited to get out on the town after a long, hot summer.

If you want to seriously study ESL in New York, use every opportunity to improve your language skills. New Yorkers are quite sociable, and you can meet new friends as you practice your conversational language skills. It’s a huge city, so don’t be afraid to get out and explore. Many people hit hot spots like Times Square and Central Park. The park is particularly beautiful in the fall, and this time of year is great for long strolls through the city streets. During the cooler evenings, it’s always fun to see a Broadway production. Tickets can be expensive, but you can often purchase discounted student tickets for many shows.

From stargazing on the recently constructed High Line in Chelsea to sampling local produce at Goold Orchards annual Apple Fest in Shodack, there’s so much to do in New York City when autumn rolls around.

    I think school drttiicss are entirely too concerned with achievement on MAPP testing. Yes, this is important, but other aspects of education are just as vital. Teachers are spending so much of their instruction time concentrating on material that is placed on the MAPP, that students from other cultures may begin to feel overwhelmed and fall through the cracks. Teachers may feel they do not have enough eduaction/knowledge on working with the English as Second Language students. I know teachers already have busy schedules, but I believe it is crucial for them to attend workshops/seminars to come more knowledgable. Also, they could team up with the ELL Specialsit to implement more collaborative teaching methods.For students learning English as a second langauge, I think it is crucial for them to stay in the classroom so they begin to learn the social rules of our language. But, I also think individual instruction is necessary for a better understanding of the academics of the language. The best way to incorporate this individual instruction would be if the ELL Specailist integrated into the ESL students classroom. Although, any individual instruction is better than none.As we have learned in Multi-Cultural Issues, it is crucial for the student to retain and practice their native langauge because it sets a strong foundation for learning English as a Second Language!
