Summer at Centro: Join our Weekly Intercambio!

If you are learning English or Spanish and want to practice your new skills with native speakers, our "Intercambio" is for you. Intercambio is an informal weekly get-together, focused on strengthening conversation skills. Our attendees are current Centro students, language lovers looking for additional practice, and newcomers from all over the world looking to make new friends. Centro volunteer English and Spanish teachers help you mingle, suggest discussion topics, and lead activities to keep the conversation flowing. Coffee, tea, and snacks add to a fun evening. You can drop in once or become a "regular" in Centro's warm, welcoming community. Please join us! Only $3 admission.

  • DATES: Intercambio meets every Wednesday in August: August 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29th.
  • TIME: 6:30 to 8:30 pm
  • COST: $3.
  • LOCATION: Goddard Riverside–Lincoln Square Neighborhood Center, 250 West 65th Street

Please RSVP on Centro's Meetup page.

Centro has a new home!

In May 2018 CentroNYC joined the Goddard Riverside family. Goddard Riverside is a leading community-focused organization, with 26 programs for children, young adults and seniors. Its roots extend back to the 19th century American Settlement House Movement. Like Centro, Goddard Riverside has a long history of providing educational and cultural opportunities to all New Yorkers, nurturing connection, and building community. We look forward to a long and productive relationship between our two organizations.

Our classes and special events are now held at the Lincoln Square Neighborhood Center, the Goddard Riverside facility at 250 West 65th Street in Manhattan. Take the #1 to 66 St, or the A, B, C, D, or E to Columbus Circle. We're located one block west of Lincoln Center and LaGuardia High School. Look for "Lincoln Square Neighborhood Center" under the scaffolding. A Centro volunteer will be inside to greet you.

Our next regular semester of English and Spanish classes begins on Monday, September 17th.
