Podcast, English as a Second Language Program, New York City, Migration Studies


English Learners in NYC is a Digital Humanities project that intersects Migration Studies and Foreign Language Learning Studies by presenting a podcast series about the learning experience of international students in English as a Second Language (ESL) programs at English schools in New York City. The project aims to provide visibility to the educational migration in this specific context and to promote a discussion on how international students and educators can reimagine their teaching and learning experience. It also aims to reveal ESL schools' challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic and how they incorporated digital technologies during and after this event.

The podcast presents three episodes for this capstone project, available on a WordPress website hosted on the CUNY Academic Commons, Audio.com, and Spotify. It is a proof of concept (POC) demonstrating its feasibility for future development.
