Trip & Outdoor Activities

Each term, teachers in the English Programme organize group outings to familiarize programme participants with the city’s cultural offerings.

Some organized group outings are

  • touring the main branch of the New York Public Library
  • touring the Museum of Natural History
  • attending plays especially produced for ESL students at the Educational Theater of New York
  • taking a literary walking tour of Greenwich Village, an area of New York City where many well-known authors have lived (these tours are conducted by Pat Duffy and Mary Regan, two native New Yorkers). At the end of the tour, participants are given an opportunity to contribute what they wish to literacy projects supported by the United Nations Staff 1% for Development Fund

Teachers will announce outings, but programme participants should feel free to enquire about them as well.
