4 New Literature-Based Courses!



Following the huge success of our past two seasons, New York English Academy is proud to offer 4 new literature-based English courses in the heart of Pisa and Lucca!

Unlike traditional English courses, these new and original courses focus on the great masterpieces of English literature, creating a perfectly inspiring atmosphere for learning English.

Fear not! We will not be using the original versions of these books, but rather special versions of these texts written especially for those studying English!

Lessons are 90 minutes each, and not only will we read and discuss the texts together, we will also listen to recordings of the text, watch portions of the filmed versions, explain key grammar points, and practice writing our impressions – all of which will allow students to expand all of their English skills.
