Descriptive Brooklyn School of Languages

Brooklyn School of Languages is a local, independent language school in New York with excellent customer service and always a warm welcome. Our focus is on our students and meeting their language learning needs, in our comfortable and fully equipped school.

Our classes are small (12 max for General English and 8 max for Business English) to ensure students receive the best possible language learning experience. Our school offers modern classrooms, a small communal kitchen area, free internet access and Wi-Fi and stunning views of Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn.

BSL is situated in the heart of Brooklyn Heights, just 5 minutes walk from the famous Brooklyn Promenade which looks out over Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge. There are a wide range of shops, restaurants and bars all within a few minutes' walk of the school, and the nearest subway stop, serving the 2, 3, 4, 5 and R lines, is right outside the school entrance.
