New Courses for Beginners!

Due to popular demand, New York English Academy is proud to offer new and original Beginner’s Courses beginning in September!

Lessons will be 60 minutes each and will cover all areas of basic English: vocabulary, basic grammar, pronunciation, a lot of speaking and listening practice, and even some simple writing exercises.

In line with our motto of ‘Learn English through your passions!’, we will be using art, literature, cinema and music as the focal point of all lessons in order to create a truly inspiring atmosphere within which to learn English.


Simple conversations about paintings will allow students to build their vocabulary; watching short films and talking about them will allow students to develop the ability to describe actions; reading short stories will introduce students to the basic tenses and grammar structures; listening to songs will help students develop their listening skills; writing short stories and emails of their own will introduce them to the basic grammar of written English.

Upon completion of the course, we expect students to be able to: describe themselves, their families, jobs, and hobbies; make basic requests and formulate questions; conduct simple telephone conversations; write brief emails, etc.


The course will be led by prof. Hannah Hayward, a native speaker from the U.K. who was raised in Italy from the age of 11. Prof. Hayward is extremely beloved by her students for her competence, warmth and patience, and is an ideal teacher for introducing Beginners to the basics of English. Being fully bi-lingual, she is also perfectly equipped to help students understand parallels between Italian and English grammar – a quality which is extremely helpful for a course of this level.

The course will also be overseen by prof. Shemtov, founder of New York English Academy, a native speaker from N.Y.C. certified by both the University of Cambridge and Berlitz, with more than 17 years’ teaching experience in N.Y., Prague, Berlin and Pisa. Prof. Shemtov will occasionally visit the class to help students practice what they’ve learned with a teacher of a different accent, origin and perspective.

  • The entire course will last 32-Weeks – from 20.09.2016 until 13.12.2016, and then 17.01.2017 until 06.06.2017.

  • Each course has a maximum of 12 students so that we can properly focus on each student’s needs and allow all participants the opportunity for plenty of practice.

  • The first trial lesson is always free, but reservations are absolutely necessary! The lesson must only be paid for if you decide to enroll in the course.

  • After 30 hours of attendance students will be offered an official ‘New York English Academy Certificate of Attendance.’
