Can someone recommend a postsecondary yeshiva for English-speaking beginners in the US, Europe or Israel?

By "beginners" I mean people without good skills in gemara. For example, I studied Jewish law in an university in France but, in the religious world, my level would still be considered as low.

Obviously, a recommendation should be tailored to the individual student, so answers below will of necessity have to be general. That is, collected below should be a complete list of anglophone yeshivas for beginners, preferably with explanation (e.g. of how they differ from one another). –  msh210 Jul 1 '13 at 17:50

The number for Derech Chaim is 718-438-5476 –  Gershon Gold Jul 1 '13 at 20:27

Kollel Nefesh HaChaim is an English-speaking Kollel in Jerusalem for young, married men who do not have extensive background knowledge in gemara.
