No, our classes are only taught in English, and we require fluency in English to take our classes.
None of our courses are English-as-second-language courses. If you are not fairly fluent in English, a Gotham class is not the best fit. However, if you are fairly fluent in English, even though it's not your first language, you may well benefit from a Gotham class. If you're not sure if your English is good enough, or which course is right for you, we are happy to help you figure it out.
Gotham welcomes English-speaking students from outside the U.S. in our New York City classes. However, we are not an accredited college or university and therefore do not have the forms necessary to obtain a student visa. Our recommendation is that interested students from abroad obtain a travel or tourist visa and count us among the cultural activities available to do while in New York City, like attending museums, readings, and seminars. Unfortunately, Gotham does not provide housing or help students from abroad find housing. Please check our hotel suggestions for New York City.
You will receive newsletters and other mailings with writing advice, news, and special deals. We will not give your contact information to any other organization, so you will only receive Gotham communications. You will find a sign-up box on the footer of this page, and you can learn more about our e-communications here.
