EC, Boston
Duration: 12 weeks

After 3 months in Boston, I have the head full of great memories! It was the most amazing and incredible experience of my life. My initial choice was New York, but then I chose Boston and I don’t regret it at all, because Boston is the perfect place for students! The city is stunning, you can go anywhere by public transports and people are very warm and nice. The school, the teachers and the lessons are amazing. Students come from all over the world and are very open-minded, so making new friends is easy. I only want to go back!

I spent 3 months in Boston and I don’t regret my choice! It’s a city full of history and culture, with a good public transport network that allows you to explore the city even without a car. The school is in the historical centre of Boston, which now is the lively financial district. I prepared for the Proficiency, a Cambridge exam, and the course offered by the school was excellent; we were only 2 people, so we improved very quickly. Another benefit: New York and Washington are very close and you can visit them during the weekend!

EC, Boston
Duration: 8 weeks

Boston is a very pleasant city where everything is walking distance; it’s not very big. There are many interesting museums, and the surroundings – such as Cape Code or Salem – offer beautiful landscapes. I also had the opportunity to spend a weekend in New York, as it’s only a few hours from Boston. I wanted to pass the TOEFL, so I attended a preparation course at EC. The specialized teacher provided really good lessons that helped me improving my English and reaching my goals. During my 4 weeks in Boston I lived with an English teacher, together with another Korean student. We had the opportunity to talk a lot and my host would correct my mistakes while encouraging me. She used to plan different activities for the three of us during the weekend, which was very nice! My stay was a good experience and will remain in my memory forever! Thank you ESL for helping me in the organization of my trip and for being so professional.

Discover this great city from the Skywalk Observatory in the Prudential Center… a nice viewpoint for discovering the birthplace of the American Revolution, or from the port so as not to do like everyone else! From Back Bay to Beacon Hill, and from Newbury Street to North End, Boston achieves surprising cocktails, with a blend of history, culture, shops, restaurants, cinemas, bars and discos. From guided visits of the Freedom Trail to the masterpieces of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, from shopping trips to Harvard Square, Newbury Street and Quincy Market, you won’t end up going around in circles. And, for the weekend, Newport, Salem, the Niagara Falls and New York are so close, don’t hesitate to get out there and explore!
