New York City is well-known around the world for its influence on the international development of music, fashion, art, finance, film and also education and politics, which the headquarters of the United Nations confirms. Also home to hundreds of different nationalities, the Big Apple is truly a melting pot. Because of its famous sights and big influence on world affairs, New York is among the most popular cities for obtaining a TEFL/tesol certification.
New York’s history dates far back to its first settlement around 400 years ago. However, the city became particularly famous for its role as a major immigration hub in the mid 1900s, when large numbers of people flocked to the city to escape unrest in europe and to seek a better life in the land of freedom. This phenomenon still has a great effect on the present with New York being one of the most diverse cities in the world, something that is unlikely to change in the coming years. More than 800 languages are spoken in the city and as much as one third of its citizens were born in foreign countries. New York is truly unique, and this is what makes the city such a popular destination for tourists and expatriates alike.
