NYU/SPS/ALI – The American Language Institute

The NYU School of Professional Studies American Language Institute (ALI) provides a comprehensive program of English language instruction and evaluation. We foster an atmosphere where proactive learning precedes rote memorization.

And, we believe that long-term retention depends as much upon what happens outside the classroom as in it. Our location in the heart of New York City provides incomparable access to the cultures of the world. We extend our classroom to the streets, giving you complete immersion in language and culture to help you learn how to express yourself with ease and accuracy.

AMERICAN ENGLISH AND THE PERFORMING ARTS is a custom language course that has been structured by the Faculty of the American Language Institute in a targeted way to harmonize and optimize all the didactic activity of our programs.

The course will be highly oriented and more emphasis will be given to the oral understanding of the specific terminology of the dance, the learning of the language currently used in the dance and musicals lessons and in professional situations.During the lessons the terminology of the various parts of the body involved in the movement and composition of dance steps, vocal intonation and acting will be examined.

Musical texts will be studied, deepening their reading, intonation, diction and exact pronunciation.

The course also includes lectures on the history of modern and contemporary dance and the Musical Theatre in general.

The course will be held two days a week: Monday and Wednesday, from 9 to 12, for a total of 18 hours.

On the last day of the course the certificates of attendance will be delivered.
