Who is New York?

New York Language Center prides itself in providing students with an exceptional Student Life experience by immersing them in American culture and New York City life. Many ideas for our activities are inspired by information provided by TimeOut New York.  

This past Wednesday, TimeOut New York published their weekly magazine in which they explored some of the stories of the immigrants that contribute to our amazing city. We are proud to say that the staff and students of NYLC provided the translations for the cover! 

The title of the issue is "Who is New York". A phrase whose meaning can be challenging to translate into English and completely lost when translated literally into other languages. Nevertheless, we were up for the challenge, and as expected, the issue stirred lots of healthy discussion about language among our staff and students. 

As such, we are so excited to be a part of such an inspiring issue that is so relevant to the events of our day. We strongly believe that New York City is made great in large part by the people who come to live and settle down here. We were, therefore, thrilled to be a part of this project. Thank you to TimeOut NY for letting us help!
