Hello, and welcome to the American Language Institute (ALI) at the NYU School of Continuing and Professional Studies (NYU-SCPS), where we offer you an extraordinary English language learning opportunity in the heart of New York City.
The ALI is a recognized leader in preparing students for the rigors of academic and professional success in the United States, providing creative, instructional programs with a personal touch. The ALI has long served as a proven pathway to language proficiency for NYU's non-native English-speaking students and as the program of choice for businesspeople and professionals of all ages seeking to perfect their English language skills for professional or personal purposes.
Our dedicated staff and international student advisor also provide guidance on issues outside of the classroom, including housing, university applications, visa information, personal plans, and future study.
With two downtown locations—the historic Woolworth Building in the Financial District and the new NYU-SCPS facility on 12th Street in Greenwich Village—the ALI is ideally positioned to take full advantage of the exciting rhythms and cultural richness of New York City.
The ALI welcomes students from around the world, from all walks of life, and at all levels of proficiency. Along with our highly experienced faculty, I invite you to come and improve your English, develop a fuller understanding of America’s diverse cultural mix, and discover the excitement of learning in a dynamic, cosmopolitan environment.
