We are excited to announce Brooklyn School of Languages (BSL) has joined the International Association of Language Centres (IALC).
Located in the vibrant borough of Brooklyn Heights in New York, Brooklyn School of Languages is a boutique independent English language school that offers personalised intensive English language courses close to the iconic landmarks of New York City.
Seek-Mui Sum, Chief-Operating Officer at IALC welcomed the school to our association and said: “We are delighted to welcome Brooklyn School of Languages to IALC, a high-quality English language school that reflects the care and attention all IALC schools devote to their students.”
In an interview with Rich Ambler, the school’s Director shares why Brooklyn School of Languages is a special place to learn English and what joining IALC means to him:
Q: How does it feel to be joining IALC?
Ever since I first attended an IALC conference as an agent in the early 2000's, I have been a long-time admirer of the organization. As an agent, I always wanted where possible to work with schools who were members of IALC. I much preferred to work with Independent language schools, most of which are owner-run and crucially with their owners very much involved on a day-to-day basis offering the type of personal touch and care for the student, that I think is SO important to a students’ well-being, and which schools that are part of larger chains cannot possibly offer. So when I established my own school, it was always my plan to apply to join IALC when the timing was right.
So now that BSL are members, I feel like I have completed the circle.
Q: Why should students learn English at our school in Brooklyn?
Students should learn English here in Brooklyn, because everything about BSL is about the personal service and care we give to each and every student. In the quality of our teaching, the environment that we create, and our continual focus on the student experience, all students at BSL benefit from this high level of student care whilst at the same time getting to study and stay in an amazing location.
Our school is located in Brooklyn Heights, just 1 subway stop from Manhattan, so students get the best of both worlds. They can easily enjoy the excitement and famous landmarks of New York City, whilst at the same time living in and experiencing cool and fun Brooklyn. Great neighbourhoods, beautiful tree-lined streets, cool bars and hip restaurants, great music, a real community feel, the list of things to do, see and experience is endless...
