English School in Albany NY for Adults

Empire State English offers English as a Second Language (ESL) programs for university students and adults, both those who live in the Capital District as well as visitors to the area.

Our Mission

At Empire State English we help non-native English speakers achieve their personal, professional and academic goals in English through quality teaching in a welcoming school environment. Our students are actively engaged learners and we inspire them to embrace English in the classroom and out in the community. Our instructors are facilitators, guiding students to understand their own learning styles and become life-long learners.

Teaching English Since 2012

Founded in 2012, Empire State English is licensed by the New York State Education Department and accredited by The Commission on English Language Accreditation (CEA).

Empire State English received approval in 2016 from the U.S. government’s Student Exchange and Visitor Program to provide ESL to international visitors with an F-1 visa.

English programs at Empire State English can be as short as one month or as long as 18 months. This will prepare international students for education at a U.S. college or university or give them language skills to pursue personal or professional interests. Admission and placement tests are ongoing throughout the year.
