ACTIVITIES AT RENNERT


Another reason why I chose Rennert is the extensive calendar of teacher-led activities. The great thing is that you practice English while having fun and meeting new people! There are no different levels like in class, and I really improved my English by talking to other students from higher levels.

I enjoyed a lot of activities in August and September which I would like to share with you in my new photo album!

Whether you are attending a Broadway show (e.g. The Lion King, Mamma Mia, Wicked), a Gospel Music service in Harlem, or a free guided city tour, there is something for every taste and interest!

Of course the activities depend on the season. In summer, you could do a lot of outdoor activities like yoga at Bryant Park, a walking tour of Williamsburg or Chinatown, fireworks on Coney Island, or a Dance Safari on Hudson. In winter, Rennert offers activities like ice skating at Bryant Park, visiting Christmas markets or watching Christmas musicals like the “Nutcracker�.


Walking Tour of Williamsburg with David! First, we took the subway to Bedford Avenue. David showed us McCarren Park where we watched a baseball match.

STOP #1: WILLIAMSBURG


After the baseball match, we went to the East River to enjoy a great view of Manhattan.

The Mamma Mia musical on Broadway! I got the ticket for $ 55 at Rennert!

STOP #2: BROADWAY


Unfortunately I wasn’t allowed to take photos during the show. To put it in a nutshell: the musical was awesome! “You are the Dancing Queen, Young and sweet only seventeen. Dancing Queen, Feel the beat from the tambourine…”

I also attended a workshop at the New York Film Academy. The topic was “Intro to Acting”.

STOP #3: NEW YORK FILM ACADEMY


The workshop was facilitated by Lester Thomas Shane. He works as an actor, director and writer. He has been seen on television, film, the New York stage, and in regional theatre.

STOP #3: NEW YORK FILM ACADEMY


In the first part of the workshop, Lester told us about the history of theater, and the development of drama.

STOP #3: NEW YORK FILM ACADEMY


The teacher showed us some drama exercises which were really funny.

2-day trip to Washington DC! We went by bus to the capital of the United States. The White House was very impressive. Unfortunately, we didn’t see President Obama there. I knocked on the door, but he didn’t open. 

STOP #4: WASHINGTON DC


We also visited the United States Capitol which is the place where the United States Congress meets. Close to the Capitol are a lot of museums, and most of them are free!

STOP #4: WASHINGTON DC


This is the Washington Monument. It was built to commemorate the first U.S. president: General George Washington. It’s the world’s tallest obelisk. After visiting the most important sights of Washington DC, we went to a bar to celebrate our Washington trip.

STOP #4: WASHINGTON DC


Every Monday, there is a Rennert Mixer at O’Neill’s Pub! Here you can meet your fellow Rennert students, and have fun with them.

STOP #5: O’NEILL’S


At O’Neills, Rennert students get some food for free, and enjoy cheap drinks. From 4 to 8 PM, you can get a beer for $4.

STOP #5: O’NEILL’S


I love “Cirque Du Soleil Zarkana�! The story is about the adventures of a magician named Zark who lost all his powers, and the love of his life. It was so awesome!

STOP #6: Cirque Du Soleil Zarkana


THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES…
