English Outdoors: Learn. Explore. Discover.


What our students say about us


The concept of the “open classroom” in NYC is perfect and we highly recommend it. The English Outdoors team is very friendly, extremely competent and provides a learning environment that inspires and motivates us. We enjoyed this open learning space, naturally integrated into everyday life in NYC. The social activities in the afternoon are also very well selected and create a perfect context to learn and speak English in a group.
Thank you very much for everything! We will recommend EO from the bottom of our hearts.

I am deeply grateful for the great experience I had with your school. I will highly recommend it because your concept is the best way to learn English and get to know the city at the same time. Your teachers were super nice and professional, and it was so much fun learning English with them. I will definitely book a course again next year.
THANK YOU so much for everything​!

EO is such a great organisation with the best teachers I ever had. Especially Tommy, who would sometimes even teach longer than he has to and provide us with great advice on any topic. Will definitely recommend the school.

Fabian Kollmann, Austria, 23

I think English Outdoors is a wonderful idea to really live the city at its biggest potential. I loved how the locations were scattered around the city, it really gave me the opportunity to discover a lot of amazing new places and to enjoy the most famous ones (such as Union Square).

Alessia Romano, Italy, 22

I got the opportunity to study with English Outdoors together with students from different countries. I was able to raise my level of English. I would  like to thank my English teacher Tommy!  I like the method of  teaching  English class outdoors.
I hope I will visit New York City again to study on English outdoors.
Thank you so much!

It was incredibly fun to have lessons in a market hall or in the foyer of a building complex. Very relaxed but serious learning atmosphere. Everything was easy to find, and the teachers were super nice and approachable. It was a great experience and I’d like to go again next year!

This concept is perfect for students who want to enjoy sightseeing in NYC but don’t have enough time to do both studying and sightseeing. It was good environment to learn.

English Outdoors

We can start conversation casually on the way to the location of the class. Also various places have different history and conditions which give us some stimulation.

You sometimes talk about the place where we are, the events that happen while we are here. We wouldn’t do that in a regular classroom.

Our Classes

I like the outdoors concept and it’s also important to mention that the book is really good and the TED talks are so interesting and helpful.

Vianeth Ruiz

The biggest reason why I like outdoor class is that we are able to talk about culture in the US. There are many types of people outside so we are able to ask the teacher quickly when we have questions.

Our Teachers

Very good teacher, willing to help and give more explanations if needed and making sure everyone understands. I learned a lot of new expressions and vocabulary.

Cloe Dufour

My teachers are very nice, they always ask a lot of questions and we practice daily conversation. Their explanations are very easy to understand.

Our Housing

I had the best host family you ever could wish. My host mum spent a lot of time to make everything clean, and the food was delicious! They are so nice when you arrive, it’s like I never left my home in Belgium.

Margot Maria Detavernier

My stay at Emily’s has been amazing. The house was clean, perfectly located next to the subway station, in a beautiful neighbourhood and very comfortable overall. The food was delicious and always diverse, tasty and balanced. But most of all Emily is the most kind, generous, funny, welcoming, friendly host ever.

Our Junior Program

I liked that we visited the city while studying, and I now I can talk without thinking in Italian before.

Massimo Brozzi, Italy

Having lessons outside was great, it is a way to discover more about NYC and places we wouldn’t know without this class.

Emma Poulain, France

The concept is perfect to get to know the city and learn English at the same time. It‘s more fun to study outside, there is so much more to see than in a classroom.

Our Field Trips

I think field trips are a great addition to the “normal” classes to dive even more deeply into the city and its history and diversity.

Alessia Romano, Italy

I enjoyed the field trips. It was a very good time for me to walk in NYC and talk with my classmates and other students from other classes too.

Ichiha Okuya, Japan

The locations for the field trips were good. It’s a fun concept and more appealing than regular classes.
