ILSC set to open New York school in April

ilsc-logo.gifThe PIE (Professionals in International Education) News reports that Canada-based language school chain ILSC Education Group is soon to open a new school in downtown Manhattan.

Global language school chain, ILSC Education Group is set to open its second US location in New York in April 2014, and will be fully accredited by CEA to offer I-20s to international students after acquiring a smaller school in September last year.

The company is currently building the school centre in downtown Manhattan with capacity to hold 300 students. The school’s director David Hughes said it will aim to be a “cultural experience” for students.

“New York is a unique kind of place so we’re looking to attract students who want to be in here but we also want to bring in creative, artistic and musical types to really make the school a cultural experience not just a language learning experience,” he told The PIE News.

Located in the heart of the financial district, Hughes says there will be a large appeal for business and executive students as well once the new building opens.

“Students learn quickly when they are able to really express their personalities and passions inside the classroom,” said Hughes. “I think New York’s rich culture and its significant place in the global financial world will offer students an exciting learning experience both inside and outside of the classroom.”
