English is my second language. I used to be shy when speaking English in front of friends and colleagues since I was scoffed by other people who said my speaking English is very bad. Now I have confidence to speak English when I meet anyone after I have learned English in ALCC for half a year. This is because I have met the best English teachers in a good English learning environment in ALCC.
The first English teacher is very kindhearted teacher, he is very patient to every student and he teaches students based on every students pronunciation level and different accent, he told us that students coming from the same country should not sit together as they would end up speaking their own language to each other. He taught us the secret of producing American sound.
My second English teacher taught us how to express our thoughts in accurate English wordings and tense. He also told us many American stories. My classmates are very kindly, some of them with Ph.D , I appreciate the time when I am studying in ALCC.
ALCC teachers gave me a relax environment and encourage me to speak loudly and confidently. Other staff I met in elevator, lobby and reception are all very nice.

I came from an Asian country and speaks English with an accent which makes it difficult for Americans to understand me, especially the r which was previously missing in my English pronunciation. After just a few months of fun-filled class with my English teacher, I feel confident and speak English more like the American way. My classmates who come from different countries are very encouraging and we work like a team with a common goal, i.e. speak English and be understood in America. My English teacher took the effort to remember the country which each student come from and speak the language of the students country when addressing that student, making it very at home for each of us. The time passed by very fast in such a relaxed environment and each of us improved very fast in our English pronunciation. I am thankful to American Language Communication Center (ALCC) and would recommend this school to anyone who is serious about improving their English.

I just finished my course at American Language with teacher Adams. Before this teacher I had 2 others but I wanted more experience with different teachers. I learned more in 3 months than in my whole life in my country. Unfortunately I have to go back to Spain in 2 weeks. I want to come back next year, but I want to stay more time.

First of alla this is not school where you can learn english.Why?because all stydents international students but not american or english students they all speaks their languages all the time and you will only be teaching by teacher and it won help u more.second think most of teacher 99 % russian japon korean or etc. which they not even spoke english well.they have accent.
third people there very very rough even cahsier or consilour.

fourth they only ask you money every time if u want change you clss you have to pay and if there is teachers like Lawn Jb or like many i can say u need to change your classes.teacher use their legs while communicate with you.i mean when they want say you stop they use their legs.they are uncultural teacher.secondly most of the teacher are there not studing teachin,they are musisian they are bodygards they are farmecer they do not have any opinion about teachin english.when u ask question they wil answear you this is english thats why or they will say stip questioning. if i know my language it doesnt mean i can teach my language well because the are many structure and level i have to start.
ALCC is a place not learning english it is place wating your time,making your nervous this is not aplace for lerning english from russian chinese who have accent while talking.i can learn english in my country.i came new york to learn english better from american.not from russian or not from a teacher who is bodygard or musixisian who has no any idea about teaching.

Worst School ever .. Rude people and disorganized. I don't think I have enough space here to write how bad my experience was while I was at ALCC. When I did my first interview to see which level I was, the guy was so rude with me he basically screamed asking me to answer the question correctly : How in the world i will answer correct if im trying to get in the school to learn ?? My teacher needed her IPHONE to check the meaning of the words before she writes it ??? If my teacher doens't know how is she going to explaim me?? My english was bad and is still bad I learn nothing and I pay a lot and when I tried to tranfer the school they tried to scare me saying that if I quit they would cancel my visa .. and the I20 lady OMG she is like: we are giving you the visa so I can treat ypu the way I want to .. I will never recomend Alcc to no one of my friends, and wait I forgot to mention that they change my teacher zilion times saying that there was not enough students in the class to keep the teacher there . As a result I went from level 5 to level 7 in less than a month , because they just trow me in whatever class because for them i was just a $$$ .. and when I went to talk with the director guess what : He treat me like an illegal imigrant .. I think this school is not serious and they need serious investigation from the immigration . I'm seriously thinking about sue them ... I want my money back and I dont want others students to go through what I went.

I don't agree with Alona. I have been in this school for two years. When I came to NYC I didn't know a word in English and this school gave me opportunity to learn enough English and go to college. After two years I went to SUNY Orange and study Computer Information Systems for another two years. I can tell you that I had problem with one class and I changed the class two times until I found a good teacher, but the teacher from my another class was very helpful, nice, funny etc etc.
xoxo Israel, even I know you don't teach there anymore.
Regards from Belgium

it is ok if you really want to learn english in a inexpensive way. At first i got a lot of negative impressive to this school, but i feel good after a few times attend the class. The teacher is responsible and give the student a full lessens. i wish i could continue to study, ---- just hope i have enough time for it.

I had the opposite experience. As Alona, I went to study there, and learned a lot in 3 months. I will come back next year. My teachers were nice and my classes were very educational.

If you want to through your money away , then this school for you.
Nobody cares if the teacher is late for the class or leaves classroom earlier and /or with out any reasons. The administration attitude is as follow: we gave you F-1 visa, and then be happy and thankful for the opportunity to stay in US legally, just pay money on time and show up at school.. Nobody cares about quality. May be it is ok for those student , who want just have a legal status and do not care about English. After 2 weeks of disappointment I drop this school, but never got my money back. If you really want to learn English NEVER go to ALCC.
