RANEPA students take an English course in New York
Students of the RANEPA Department of Finance and Banking (DFB) have completed an English course from St. Giles International, one of the largest English language training networks.
The program admitted students of the Presidential Academy with different levels of English, from Elementary to Advanced. The interactive course was aimed at developing their listening, reading, writing, and speaking skills.
Thanks to St. Giles International in New York, the RANEPA DFB students learned to speak English fluently in everyday life situations. They plunged into the life of the city of skyscrapers, feeling like real New Yorkers and getting an unforgettable experience in that youthful and very dynamic city.
Sergei Ter-Petrosyan, a second-year Master’s student, said he has significantly improved his English during the St. Giles program, and met interesting people from all over the world.
“The school has a warm, friendly atmosphere in which everyone feels as comfortable as possible. The teachers are very amicable and are very good at helping students establish contact. Studying at the New York branch is not just about learning the basics of English, but also about exposure to America’s cultural values,” said Kemal Suyunchev, a third-year undergraduate student, adding that it was his first experience studying abroad.
At the end of the course, the RANEPA DFB students were awarded certificates confirming their level of English proficiency with a detailed individual reference. The trip was organized by Deputy Director of the Undergraduate Department Mariam Vardanyan, who also spent time learning English with the students.
St. Giles International was founded in 1955 in London. The New York City St. Giles International branch is located on Fifth Avenue, in the heart of Manhattan. Every year St. Giles International admits about 10,000 students from around the world.
