    • Surrounding Area
    • The center is ideally located in the heart of downtown Manhattan and in the civic and financial center of New York City, only minutes from Wall Street, Chinatown, Little Italy, and the artsy neighborhood of Soho. As the most populous city in the United States, New York City is home to nearly 8.2 million people and to an unsurpassed collection of world-class museums, art galleries, international corporations, performance centers and world-famous media outlets. Called “The City that Never Sleeps,” New York City lives up to its reputation for its fast-paced urban environment and its residents take pride in living amid the crowds, noise and the general hardships of city life. Regarded as the model of the American ideal of a “melting pot,” New York City is home to a greater diversity of immigrant groups than any other American city. Centrally-located in the core of the “Big Apple,” the center provides students with easy access to the Metro – the city’s convenient public transportation system - to explore Manhattan's eclectic neighborhoods, whether to experience Chinatown's bustling streets, soak in the energy of Times Square or stroll through majestic Central Park. If you are looking for something to do outside of the city, there are plenty of exciting places to explore in the surrounding boroughs. Historic Yankee Stadium and the Bronx Zoo are popular destinations while many visit the Japanese Botanical Garden and Coney Island in Brooklyn or Shea Stadium – home to the New York Mets – in Queens. Regarded as the capital city of the world, New York City offers an education onto itself and provides endless opportunities to tap into its energy, enjoy its diversity and experience a city unlike any other.

      I had a good time at LSI
      從申請就讀到匯款,一切都很順利,對方回答問題也很積極馬上就迅速完成註冊了! 學校的位置也很好找,靠近地鐵站,去SOHO或是CHINA TOWN都很方便。我的班上各國同學分配得很平均,一半是歐洲人一半是亞洲人,讓我最開心的是我上課的期間8至9月學校完全沒有台灣人和大陸同學,讓我在全英文的環境度過快樂的暑假!班上採小班制,上課氣氛非常好,老師們都有準備教材教學也很認真,在聽說讀寫各方面都會幫我們加強。跟老師互動過程中也學到很多課外知識,一個月下來真的覺得非常充實!一切都值得了!如果覺得程度跟不上貨是要晉級都可以跟老師反應。總而言之非常推薦LSI!
