Learn the Language!

ABC Live Language Classes

All students may choose to take a live language class with ABC Languages, one of New York’s premier language schools, located near Penn Station. Private and virtual one-on-one lessons are available in 20+ languages..

Stern MBA students receive a 10% discount for group classes and 10% off all private and virtual lessons. For more information, email or visit ABC Language and find the language of your choice.

NYU Speaking Freely

All NYU undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to participate in NYU Speaking Freely, a free, ten-week language coaching session. Each week, students will learn how to communicate on a different topic, or you might enjoy a related activity--a movie, concert, or neighborhood visit--as part of a small informal language group. No books are required, and there’s no pressure of grades!

NYU Language Courses

Students can also enroll in language courses through NYU’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies. These courses will not be covered by Stern tuition, and will not count toward a Stern degree, but they are a way to learn a language in a more formal setting.

Free Online Language Resources

  • New York University has a partnership with Mango, an online language learning program offering over 60 foreign languages. Students can access this program by searching for "Mango" under "Database A-Z" on the New York University Library homepage. Students need only their NYU Net ID to create an account. We encourage students to take advantage of this resource.
  • Fluent Future
  • Busuu
We recognize the importance of understanding the local language when entering a new country. Whether our students are on a full-semester study abroad, a summer program, or a DBi, it's helpful to know a few phrases and work toward fluency. We have provided some options from around the university that are available to students.
