St Giles New York City is an English language school in an attractive refurbished art-deco office block on Fifth Avenue, in the very heart of Manhattan, New York. We are the newest school in the St Giles group, opened in 2011, and since then we have established a reputation for excellence in English language teaching. We are also pleased to offer people wishing to be teachers the chance to study the Cambridge CELTA (Certificate in Teaching English to Adults). Each of our courses is run by two experienced Teacher Trainers, who are also practicing teachers here in New York and have experience teaching abroad.
