We Speak NYC (WSNYC) - (formerly We Are New York) is New York City’s free English language learning program that provides civic focused multimedia resources created to empower adult immigrants through learning and practicing everyday English. Our resources include an Emmy-Award winning educational drama series that informs learners about important New York City resources. The episodes address issues that most concern immigrants such as health care, democracy, education, immigration legal help, elder care, and managing finances.
We Speak NYC provides digital and/or printed materials for use in our conversation classes. Each episode is accompanied by a robust workbook with vocabulary, reading and writing exercises for students to use as a self study tool, or for conversation class facilitators to use as a supplement to their class activities in and/or outside the classroom. Additionally, we have a website that includes all our episodes and materials as well as additional interactive activities to help learners practice at home and teacher resources for educators including a facilitator handbook, episode study guides and an extensive set of curriculum materials.
We Speak NYC classes currently run through four cycles a year in line with the seasons:
