Students may choose from different, but always comfortable, options of accommodation. The Homestay Programme (accommodation in a private house) allows the student to live and feel as a true New Yorker. Residence Halls (accommodation in residences on Manhattan) offer comfortable and clean single and double rooms with a number of facilities. In close vicinity of the school there are many hotels, if you wish to live in a hotel. Each of these types of accommodation provides ideal conditions for learning through making contact and socialising with people from all over the world.
Regardless of where you stay, you can access the school on foot or by public transport.

Rennert Bilingual's Media Center is equipped with modern  equipment for learning languages. The students who wish to improve on their listening comprehension or to brush up their accent have access to audio players. Moreover, the Center is equipped with video players for students who want to watch movies in the original version - all films are made in the 'closed captions' technique. Apart from that the Center also houses computer terminals for students who wish to develop their English knowledge by using interactive computer programs checking grammar and pronunciation or programs preparing for the TOEFL and TOEIC examinations.

On arrival, at 9:15, you will be greeted by the representative of Rennert Bilingual's staff, who is responsible for receiving new students. After taking a placement test and a short short interview aimed at choosing the most appropriate level for each student, you will get the course schedule and go to your first class. After classes an orienteering meeting will take place, where you will get your student identity card, you will be informed about extracurricular activities, shopping possibilities, public transport and you will also have a chance to get answers to all of your questions.

Everything that goes on in New York is an attraction. Every minute spent there intensifies and speeds up the process of learning the American language. The coordinator of extracurricular activities plans a few trips a week to places such as the New York Stock Exchange, television studios, jazz clubs, baseball matches, museums. To some of these trips only one class will be taken, others are organized for the whole school - you can join if you decide that the theme of the trip is interesting. Every trip will be guided by a tour guide from Rennert Bilingual. Getting to know new people in an unfamiliar city is the best way to test your freshly acquired language skills.

Rennert Bilingual is a founder-member of IALC, International Association of Language Centers. This membership is a confirmation of the high quality of the equipment and facilities, and excellent qualifications of the lecturers. The school fulfils also the AAIEP, American Association of Intensive English Programs, requirements and is a member of NAFSA - National Association of Foreign Student Advisors. The Rennert Bilingual school is accredited by the New York State Education Department and authorised by the federal authorities to receive students with non-immigrant status (Form I-20/ Student Visa)


(30 classes a week)

this dynamic programme teaches the basis of the American variety of English and concentrates on student's individual needs. After passing the placement test and the oral interview, each of you will join a 7-10 students group, at a level corresponding to yours. The school offers courses at 10 proficiency levels. Level 1 (Beginners) courses start on the first Monday of every month, while level 2 and higher may start classes any Monday. In the afternoons, the students take part in Elective Classes for two weeks to improve different language skills. The total number of 30 classes a week guarantees that you spend the optimal amount of time learning, while it still leaves you the evenings and the weekends to experience what New York has to offer.

You can choose the elective classes from:
Conversation workshops for beginners (Beginners)
Phonetics, pronunciation
Conversation workshops (Intermediate)
Writing and business correspondence workshops (Upper Intermediate, Advanced)
American Culture (Upper Intermediate, Advanced)

Elective classes constitute an important part of the intensive English learning programme. These classes can be attended by the students of other programmes.

This programme is intended for students visiting New York who, apart from the classes planned by the school, would like to have more time for individual sightseeing in New York and other attractions. Groups of 7-10 students meet for 4 hours a day in the mornings from 9:30 till 1:30 or in the afternoons from 1:30 till 5:30 (Monday till Friday)
The rest of the day and also evenings and weekends are at the students' disposal: this is the time for discovering the city, its cultural attractions as well as the exquisite cuisine of the numerous restaurants.

(16 classes a week)

This course, a little less intensive, allows for learning English and discovering New York at the same time. Despite the name, it is available all year round for students of all levels of proficiency. The written and oral placement test, taken on the day of arrival, will help to place the student in an appropriate group. The classes take place in groups of 7 to 10 students. Every day, from Monday till Thursday, four 55-minute lessons take place in the mornings (9:30 - 13:30) or in the afternoons (14:00 - 16:00). The rest of the day, as well as the three-day weekends, can be devoted to sightseeing in New York. The minimum age of the students is 17.

INDIVIDUAL COURSES (20 classes a week) 
A half-intensive language course is also available in a form tailored to the student's individual needs. Many students who participate in such morning private courses extend their learning opportunities by taking part in the afternoon elective classes.

(20 classes per week)

This course, offered to upper intermediate and advanced students, improves language skills necessary for communicating effectively in the world of international business.

Students whose English is fluent will have a chance to improve on it though an apprenticeship in a genuine American company as a junior apprentice. After completing at least 2 weeks of an intensive English course (30 hours a week), students can take part in the junior apprentice programme. Each student wanting to take part in this programme is obliged to send an application for this course at least 3 months before the beginning of the English course. Whether the student is accepted at a particular company will depend on the results of he interview with the student, the availability of apprentice posts and the charges.

The TOEFL examination is intended for students applying for universities in the USA and in Canada. Its aim is to check whether the candidate possesses language skills necessary to communicate in the academic environment. This examination is acknowledged by all universities and similar institutions in the enrolment procedure. Rennert Bilingual offers a special programme preparing to the TOEFL examination for upper-intermediate and advanced students. These small groups preparing for the TOEFL examination (7-10 students) meet for 4 hours every afternoon to study grammar, listening and reading comprehension necessary to pass this examination. Mock examinations are taken every week and they are discussed vastly with the instructors. We help by registering for the TOEFL examinations, which take place every month in numerous spots in New York.

Rennert Bilingual in New YorkTOEIC COURSE
The Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC) is an examination for students whose mother tongue is not English. Its aim is to test the English communication skills of people working in an international environment. The scores achieved at this examination are the basis of assessing the efficiency of communicating in a business, trading and industrial environment. This examination does not require specialist vocabulary or knowledge apart from that of everyday professional activities. This examination lasts for 2 hours, it is based on a multiple choice test and is divided into two parts: listening comprehension and reading. Receiving a good mark at this examination enhances the chances of your job application. Renner Bilingual organizes TOEIC examinations once a month in the school.

(30 classes a week)

This programme guarantees a professional approach to teaching English for business purposes. Small groups of 3-5 students meet for 3 hours every morning and 3 hours every afternoon, which makes 30 hours a week. All instructors are university graduates, English is their native language and they are experienced in particular business areas. Class discussions and role plays mirror real-life situations and help to learn appropriate vocabulary and practice speaking. Sometimes guests are invited to the classroom to discuss particular subjects related to business, finance, marketing, politics, government administration and the like. Excursions to places related to the subject matter of the course, such as criminal courts, Securities Exchange Commission and the New York Stock Exchange and participation in cultural events are an excellent extension and supplement of the teaching programme.

This unique combination allows the students of the management course to participate in a 3-hour morning class in a small group (described above) and then to practise individually with an  instructor during a 3-hour afternoon class that concentrates on the student's special needs. The programme of individual classes is tailored to the student's individual needs. It is possible to reverse the order of classes - 3-hour morning class with an instructor and in the afternoon - with a small group of students. The programme of individual classes depends on the student's individual needs and may cover various areas of language, beginning with vocabulary and practising correct pronunciation and ending with marketing and financial issues.

In situations when both speed and quality of progress matters, this programme is the best solution. It offers 30 classes a week on a student - private instructor basis (one-to-one).
The 6-hour classes that take place during the day concentrate on the student's linguistic needs and his or her particular interest areas. This is the best method to learn the American variety of English. This programme also leaves the student enough free time to visit the business centres of New York.

combination (30 classes a week)

This programme is intended for managers and professionals. Students learn both in small groups (of maximum 5 people) and individually, with an instructor who is experienced at a particular area of interest. 24 hours a week are devoted to groups lessons, while the remaining 6 hours are devoted to meeting American professionals who share your business experience. During these meetings the students learn the appropriate vocabulary and discuss current tendencies in business.

Students who have completed the full time professional English programme can apply for a continuation of the course as an applicant manager at a company that corresponds to their professional profile. Students wishing to take part in such a programme must have a university diploma and 5 years of experience in one of the following branches (this is not a complete list):
