We recognize the importance of language when entering a new country. Whether on a full-semester study abroad or week-long DBi, it’s key to know a few phrases, and ideal to begin to develop fluency.
Language Options for Stern
ABC Language Exchange
All students are invited to take a group class at ABC Language Exchange, one of New York’s premier language schools, located near Penn Station. There are over 23 languages offered, and instruction is held in classrooms with a maximum of 9 students. New classes, with varying levels, begin every month!
Stern MBA students receive a 10% discount + a waiver of the $50 registration fee (enter the code NYU Stern Discount in the dialog box at the bottom of the payment page). All learning materials/ texts are included in the price of your course. To register, visit ABC Language and find the language of your choice.
NYU Speaking Freely
All NYU undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to participate in NYU Speaking Freely, a free, ten-week language coaching session. Each week, you'll learn how to communicate on a different topic, or you might enjoy a related activity--a movie, concert, or neighborhood visit--as part of a small informal language group. No books are required and there’s no pressure of grades!
NYU School of Continuing and Professional Studies
You can also enroll in language courses through NYU’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies. These courses will not be covered by your Stern tuition, and will not count toward your Stern degree, but they are a way to learn a language in a more formal setting.
Stern MBA Exchange Buddy Program
The Exchange Buddy Program matches Incoming Exchange Students with Stern MBA students. This partnership can work both ways--Stern students offer information about the Stern community, academics and cultural information--while having the opportunity to practice a foreign language and learn about a new culture. Sign up to be a “buddy” at email@example.com.
