We Are New York is an Emmy-nominated half-hour TV show. You can watch the show on Saturdays at 4:00 pm and Sundays at 7:20 am on Channel 25 (or Channel 22 on Cablevision). You can also watch it on Tuesdays at 11:00 pm on Channel 34 (or RCN Channel 92 or Verizon Channel 33).
The show can make a difference in people’s lives. Each episode has a different story of immigrants living in New York City. They show how New Yorkers can work together to solve problems and create better lives for themselves. The stories capture the spirit of people who have come from all over the world to make the Big Apple their home.
We Are New York is intended to help people learn English that will be useful to them. Each week, a new story will show people speaking English in important and realistic situations, like going to the doctor or talking with a child’s teacher.
The characters speak the English of everyday life. But, they speak a little slower than the average English-language television show. The show also has subtitles in English, helping people to understand and learn the language.
