Intro to Coding & Intensive English


LSI’s new course, in conjunction with TurnToTech, will teach you coding, the most desired skill for the 21st century. This course gives you a comprehensive overview of the basics of web development and app development. You'll learn you how to build your own website and a smartphone app and you'll learn English in the heart of New York City. After eight weeks, you’ll finish the course having built your own website and a smartphone App. And you’ll have made significant progress with your English language level.

TurnToTech, based in NY, is a modern coding school and teaches its students mobile and web development and provides them with career services. This background of Coding with a good command over English is a good foundation for taking more advanced courses in Software Engineering/Graphic Design/User Experience Design - all in very high demand, both in the US and elsewhere. And if you have the right aptitude, you could start applying for internships or start developing your own apps.

Course structure

  • Intro to Coding: 8 weeks, two classes per week. Each class is 3 hours and comes with lecture slides, homework assignments, and a final project.
  • Office visits to technology companies around NYC, at least one a month
  • Technology events, either at our campus or other events in NYC, at least once a week
  • Participation in a ‘hackathon’ once a month*
  • English classes: General 20 or Intensive 30 lessons per week (8 weeks minimum)
  • In LSI's Intensive 30 programme, students can choose between several different modules including; English for Business, Exam Preparation (TOEFL iBT, FCE & CAE) & Conversational Fluency
  • *Hackathon is a popular way for programmers, designers and people with general interest in technology to come together and launch a small product over a weekend of coding. TurnToTech organizes its own Hackathons with prizes, and these are very popular among our students.

Course requirements

  • No prior coding knowledge is required. This course will cater to complete beginners.
