Free Economic Elective Course Series Opens at Rennert Bilingual English language school, New York

18/01/2008

A popular series of free economics elective courses has made its on-site debut at Rennert Bilingual English language school in New York. The classes previously had been held at the Henry George School but have been shifted to Rennert's campus due to their popularity.

The free courses, which are due to take place twice a week, will start on the first Tuesday of every month and run for four weeks. The classes focus on the history and fundamentals of macroeconomics, and are taught by teachers from the Henry George School of Social Science. The courses offer English language students the chance to improve their language skills as their general knowledge. Students receive a certificate upon completion of their course.

“These courses set up very well for our students,” says Brad Nield, a Rennert teacher who coordinates the classes. “There is a one-hour formal lecture followed by a one-hour discussion that is generated both by spontaneous questions and written materials that summarizes the course's main points,” he adds.

Rennert Bilingual English language students who finish the first session can go on to a second and third month-long certificate course. Classes are limited to 15 students. Agents or students can pre-register for the courses by contacting Rennert's admissions department.

The Henry George School has been offering free economics classes since 1932. Its focus is on demystifying the principles of economics and providing the conceptual tools students need to understand boom/bust cycles, chronic poverty and other economic problems.
