    • Dear English Language Learners,

      On behalf of the staff and faculty here, I would like to welcome you to the Haggerty English Language Program. We are here to help you improve your English skills, achieve your language goals, and guide you through American social and Academic culture.

      Our professors of English as a New Language are highly qualified, experienced, and helpful to all students. They are trained to meet the language needs of each student and will work with you to improve your reading, writing, listening, speaking and pronunciation in English.

      You will also be able to meet many students from all over the world. This will enhance your language learning by giving you plenty of opportunity to use your English outside of the classroom. You may also come away with new life-long friendships and life-changing experiences.

      You can do all this on the beautiful and safe SUNY New Paltz campus. Being a part of an American college provides you with a lot of extra opportunities for learning by joining student clubs, going to student concerts and plays, and attending free public lectures in the sciences and the arts.

      Pretty Environment and Nice People in New Paltz
      I love SUNY, New Paltz. Everything was great. I joined the HELP program to learn English and it was really helpful for my career and for dealing with people. The most important thing is that people in New Paltz are kind and patient. If I have one more chance, I definitely will go back to New Paltz. Anyway, choose this school because it is the best choice I have ever made.

      About Extra Curricular Activities
      Overall, this school is pretty good. I wish they had had some more extra-curricular activites. The campus is very good and the class quality was also. While I was there, I felt there were many Korean students, but this changes depending on the time of year you go. Some students like being around others from their country and others prefer not to.

      I love New Paltz
      總之是一個很讚的小鎮,春夏秋冬各有不同的美麗。好山好水、人和善,風氣又自由尊重。是個唸書的好地方。而且離紐約市還滿近的,可當天往返,卻沒有都市的喧囂和市郊的雜亂。ESL學生亞洲人為一半,其他的中南美和歐洲人人數相近,有一些非洲學生。英語課程依程度分3級,每班約10來人。這個學校的教育與藝術系所很不錯,尤其是金屬工藝Metal Program很有名。

      I love New Paltz.
      처음 어학연수를 준비할땐 미국에 계시는 이모부님의 댁에서 가장 가깝고 이모부가 추천하시는 곳으로 가게됐습니다. 그곳이 바로 New Paltz. 처음 미국이라는 곳에 입국했을땐 많이 막막 했습니다. 하지만 그곳의 native speaker들도 너무 친철하게 대해주고 특히 ELS 프로그램 선생님들은 아주 친철하게 대해주셨습니다. 학교 수업을 마칠때쯤에는 모든 나라에서 온 친구들이 같이 헤어짐을 아쉬워 하고 각국에 돌아 갔을 때도 연락을 할 수 있도록 연락처도 주고 받았습니다. 그리고 New Paltz주변의 아름다운 경치를 만끽하다보면 어느새 영어가 일취월장하게 될 것입니다. 어학연수를 생각하고 계신다면 주저하지 말고 도전을 해보세요.^^ 그리고 여러분의 행복을 찾으세요..^^
