I wanted to attend Cambridge College but I did not have TOEFL score yet. Then my friend told me that I should apply to EC Boston and as if I could pass the Academic Program, I could attend Cambridge College without a TOEFL score. That’s why I tried my best when I was in class in order to prove my English level. In addition, I really need to improve my academic skills that help me to study in Cambridge College. The Academic Program is one of the first steps for students who want to study in university/college like me. The teacher also is very good with his strong knowledge in many fields. I learned a lot not only from the teachers but also from my classmates. I always introduce this program for my friends. Someday, if I need to study English, I will come back to EC Boston.

My company chooses for me to study in Boston because it is one of the best cities to study English in the US and they chose this school because it has a splendid relationship with my company. And it is really safe here! I love my classmates. They improved at each level. My problem with English was vocabulary, but when I talked and chatted with my classmates it really helped me improve. I lived on the outskirts of the city with a host family. It was a little bit far from school but I could study while I traveled by commuter rail. When you are here you should eat at Legal Seafood and watch soccer at the Gillette Stadium.

I choose Boston because it’s a good city to study. My cousin recommended this school because he studied here. The teachers are excellent and so is the office staff. They are so friendly and professional. The students make a great environment to study and learn English. I recommend Scoozi and Stephanie’s restaurant in Newbury Street. And Rumor, Venue and Suite are good nightclubs. You have to go to Fenway Park to watch a baseball game. You should go to Quincy Market, Boston Common and Harvard University.

Teaching English allows me to meet people from all over the world and to hear their different experiences and perspectives. This is especially true at EC Boston, where there is a great mix of students and teachers. I love that I teach in Boston, a city that can really give students a sense of the range of American culture. From the Red Sox baseball team to the history of the American Revolution to its exceptional universities, Boston offers rich cultural experiences for all types of learners here at EC.

I choose to study in Boston because the environment is really good to study in. There are a lot of famous universities here. It’s a really nice and pretty city. The school is in a very good location; it’s near downtown. It has a good quality of teaching and there are a lot of nice people here. I stayed in a Homestay and enjoyed being with my host family. I learned about American culture from them. When you are here, make sure you go to the cheesecake Factory, Shino Express on Newbury Street, John Harvard in Harvard Square, Breeze Shabu Shabu in Chinatown and A-li-lun Korean Restaurant near Berkley Music Collage. Also visit Harvard and MIT. I will definitely come back to this school.

I chose the University Access Program because I want to enter university after I graduate from this program. I hope that the University Access Program will help me achieve my goal. The programme is really good. I like it a lot! The material is very interesting and the lessons and assignments are very challenging! I’ve already learned a lot from this programme and I’m sure that I’ll greatly improve my English skills by the end of this course.

I chose to study in Boston because of advice I heard. Also, in my country some of my friends who study in Suffolk University told to me that Boston was the city in the USA where more of the students go to school. I chose to study in EC Boston because of advice from others, too, from BHCC (Bunker Hill Community College). BHCC advised me that if I want to improve my English, I should study at EC.

While I have been in Boston I’ve developed my English skills at the same time that I’ve improve my professional skills.

I hadn’t known too much about Boston before I arrived here. When I met the staff at EC in my first day of classes, I could immediately realize that it is a very friendly place. The teachers are very friendly; actually they really become your friends. They organized a lot of fun activities almost every day. These activities were great for meeting new people and practicing my English.

Moreover, I have had the chance to experience living with a host family which contributed a lot to my learning process. I could feel that my English has improved noticeably since I arrived at EC Boston.

Boston is an awesome city! The people are very approachable and kind. I always meet people on the subway (“T”) on my way to school or home. If you want to have a memorable experience in the USA, you should come to Boston. Choose EC Boston, which is located in the heart of Boston.

I taught English at a public high school in Japan for five years and it was one of the best experiences of my life. Teaching is a life enriching profession because not only do my students learn but I also learn with them. I love teaching at EC Boston because of the diversity of our student body which opens the door for interesting conversations and the chance to learn more about other countries and cultures. I love that in addition to teaching my students English, I also get to teach them how to think outside the box and build up their confidence so they can go out into the world self assured in their English speaking abilities. I look forward to meeting more students in the coming months. :)

Student Testimonial
Hello! My name is Hyunjun and I’m from South Korea, I have been studying English for almost 6 months. I really enjoy the EC Boston classes and all my fantastic teachers and friends. EC Boston classes are divided up into elective and core classes. I can study grammar, listening, speaking and writing in core class. In elective class, I could study specific topics; so I could work on my weaknesses.

Participating in school activities helped me a lot with my vocabulary. I went to the theater and watched a movie. At that time, I couldn’t understand all the sayings of the actor and actress, but I still enjoyed it and felt like I was learning. I also enjoyed going to the baseball stadium and going to the pub with friends. I think it is important to join various activities as well as study at school to improve English. One of the best experiences was visiting Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The two universities are well known around the world. Harvard was smaller than I’d imaged, but it was beautiful.

The teachers at EC Boston taught English very well. They always helped me and gave me advice when I was having trouble. As a result, my English is better than before. I’m never going to forget my time at EC Boston. For future EC Boston students: remember to study hard and have fun in Boston!

This summer I decided to come back to Boston and stay with the same host family of the last year.

Michelle and her family are the best family that I could have found. She has two daughters, Lauren and Alanna, one son, Jarrett and also a niece. I have a good relationship with all of them, they always take me everywhere and this year, like the last year, I did a lot of things, especially with Lauren and Alanna, as they are my age, and her American friends. We went to the beach, to the mall, to the cinema, I was invited to two birthdays and also we spent a day in New Hampshire in Canobie Lake Park with all the family.

While I was in Boston, I didn’t miss my family; staying with Michelle is the same to stay with my mom. Every day when I came home she always asked me about the day and about my friends.

She always stays with her students and she always laughs a lot, I had a lot of fun with her, and I love her so much.

Now, that I know them for two years, they want to visit me in Italy and Spain because they want to learn about my countries and cultures, and I'm sure I will go next summer to stay with them again.

I\'m from the Southern United States, a small town called Mt. Airy in the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina. I love living in Boston because our city is beautiful and full of history! I am very happy to be a teacher at EC because I get to meet people from all over the world and share my love of languages. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, watching very old movies, and attempting (and usually failing) to be as fit as other Bostonians.

During the time I lived in Boston I stayed with a host family. They were 5 people who always made me feel like in my real home. They are very nice and friendly and the house was clean with an amazing view of the ocean.

I had an awesome time with them, we spent a lot of time together and I had a lot of fun. I liked to talk with them because they were paying me attention and they were always helping me with my English. Another good thing about my host family was the food. They cook very well and do the best cookies and pizza ever.

Before I went to Boston I didn’t have an experience like that and now I’m very glad that I lived with a host family. It was a good idea; because I could learn more English and see the American life, while my host family and I built a beautiful friendship that last forever.

Student Testimonial
I’ve been studying at EC for three months, and in such a short time I’ve learned not only English, but also about many cultures from all over the world. Here are a few reasons why I loved my experience at EC Boston.

First of all, I enjoy going to EC every day. Fortunately, I have a lot of great friends, classmates, and teachers. During class, we often learn about and discuss topics that aren’t written in our text book, and they are always interesting. My teachers answer all my questions in detail and they know both the strong and weak points of my English, so they are able to give me helpful advice.

My classmates from different countries are very inspiring. Each student has a different background and purpose for coming here. For example, we were all surprised when some classmates from Saudi Arabia told us that they had tigers in their home. In elective class, students are sometimes gathered from different levels. Classmates in higher levels can speak English very fluently, and furthermore, they know a lot about their country. I realized I knew very little about Japan, which made me disappointed. Now I want to learn more about my country when I go back to Japan.

After class, I usually go home to my host-family. They take care of me as if I am their daughter. We sometimes hold parties in the back yard, and go to the movies or the beach together. They always talk with me a lot, and have helped to teach me English. My host mother likes writing notes, so she often writes many new words for me. I’ve learned a lot of useful sayings and phrases during my homestay. It’s important to have a family I can ask for help because living abroad is not easy.

Finally, I’ve never felt lonely or homesick. The best thing for me is the people I’ve met here. I may have been able to learn only English in Japan; however, I couldn’t have met and spent time with such great people. I’m satisfied with my decision to come here. No two days are the same. My time at EC Boston has taught me a lot about myself and has given me the confidence to use English every day.

Student Testimonial
When I decided to go to Boston for just two weeks I had to choose between staying in a Homestay or in different accommodation. Since it would have been a very short period, I opted for the Homestay because there were more chances to speak English and to directly experience Bostonian’s lifestyle.

Now my two weeks are over and I must say that I made the best choices: a great city, a dynamic and well located school, a colorful and charming period (Fall) and a wonderful host-mother (in this case I’ve been very lucky).

Karen, my host-mother, is a very genuine person who dedicates a lot of her time to the people who stay in her house and is always ready to help everybody. Moreover, suffering from celiac disease (gluten intolerance) as I do, she has plenty of gluten free food in her house, which is something extraordinary! However, all of those who can eat everything don’t need to worry: she cooks everything and she cooks it excellently!

If you are still wondering if the Homestay -solution is worth the price, well, then go ahead because there is no better choice (at least for the short-term)!

I moved to Boston to attend Harvard University and fell in love with the city. After graduating, I decided to stay here. I have now lived in Boston for all of my adult life save for the three years I spent teaching English in Kyrgyzstan. I am always happy to talk about the wonderful sights and resources of this beautiful city, especially its awesome sports teams!

I currently teach in EC Boston's University Foundation Program, which prepares international students to enroll in and succeed at an American college or university. As a graduate of the US university system, at both the undergraduate and the graduate level, I know how challenging it can be to succeed, even for native speakers. For someone coming into the system from a different language and cultural background, the challenges are magnified. I am excited about helping our students make this transition smoothly and successfully, and I am incredibly proud of the UFP graduates who are thriving in universities across the US!

When I was thinking about going in the United States I was skeptic, because some friends from school told me everything is bigger in the US and so are the cities. Looking at cities like New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco I was a little bit intimidated. But after I saw Boston I knew this would be a good place to learn something about a new culture.

Learning English in school at your home country is okay, but you are not forced to use your new learned vocabulary the whole time. I stayed for about 6 month in Boston and I think that I learned more English in this time than I ever did at school.

Every day there is a new event with the teachers or the staff and I promise you will have a lot of fun. You are going to visit a lot of the coolest places in Boston, but maybe even more important you are going to learn a lot about the history of the US. Boston is the most important place to experience the beginning and the end of the foundation of the United States.

All this you are going to do with a lot of other students from all over the world. It is extremely cool to meet people from Korea, Saudi Arabia or Brazil. You are going to find a lot of new friends very fast because almost everyone is in the same situation as you; they are here to learn English with other people. From my own experience I can say that those friendships will make things a lot easier and they will last very long.

If you are ready to learn a new language and culture and to have fun with a lot of new people then I suggest you should go to EC Boston. Trust me, you are going to have the best time of your life.

I chose Boston because it is a beautiful city and I thought it wouldn’t have many Swiss people, but we speak always in English together. I learnt a lot in my first five weeks, I improved my English, I met a number of new people from around the world and I know more about American people. I would recommend EC to a friend because the school is very central and the teachers are very good. I will remember the good time I had, the friendly people and last but not least the beautiful city.

My name is Rosa Francisca and I chose Boston, at first, because it’s completely different from my city so everything would be totally different. I have been here for two months and I still have one more, and during this time I learned a lot of things, not just English, I had to face different situations and needed to solve them so I became more confident and independent. I also learned about cultures from all over the world. I started in Intermediate and now I’m in advanced, so I improved a lot. I’m thankful for all my teachers and friends for this! I’ll recommend EC Boston to all my Brazilian friends, it’s the best school ever!

It was awesome to meet all of you. I’ve heard before about EC when I was Turkey. Someone told me you should choose them, because they have given really perfect education. I’m an economist and have worked at bank for five years. I needed to improve my English as soon as possible. So, I came to Boston and apply to EC. I’ve taken really awesome education and improved my English a lot. Also, I met a lot of friends who are from different country and culture. It was really pleasure for spending time with them and all of you guys. In these days I’m planning on getting a master degree. I’ll take a TOEFL exam in order to apply to an univer-sity. Absolutely, I will recommend to my other friends for EC.

English teaching, especially at EC Boston, has become an interdisciplinary field. My students and I discuss contemporary events and make connections between language and other fields, such as science, art, music, literature, and history. I have taught English both in the US and abroad for different age groups and abilities, most recently as the Kids and Teens Program Coordinator in Espirito Santo, Brazil. I consider myself to be a lifelong student in the sense that I am always learning; my students teach me something new every class. EC Boston's students come from all corners of the globe, which turns each day into a fun and interesting learning experience.

I’ve studied at EC Boston for 8 months and I’m highly satisfied. My goal was to learn ‘American English’. Especially, Asian countries have their own expressions, and Asian students tend to translate them into English directly. I’ve been trying to remove my Korean English. Before I graduated from EC Boston, my advisor told me that my essay didn’t have Korean English. Thus, I think I almost achieved my goal here. Teachers are working hard. The staff are kind. My advisor has led me to right directions. If I got back to March, my first month, I would choose EC Boston again!

I liked living in the same building with my friends. I would recommend EC Boston because it is an amazing place to learn and share knowledge. My friends came from everywhere, I have at least 3 new friends from every continent. I will remember the excellent people that I met. And the teachers now are my friends, I feel lucky to met them, they support me a lot with all my goals and helped me with everything I needed. The quality of a good institution is all about the people, and here I could find people who make me feel at home (staff and teachers).

In addition, I would remember that I was one of the ambassadors, leading for activities offered by EC and helping EC manager, Hannah.

Teacher Testimonial
“As an AY mentor, it is my job to help students keep track of their academic progress and set ambitious but achievable goals. I meet with students regularly to see if they are on track and to help them find resources for practicing specific skills. Being an AY mentor involves more than academic support, however. Living in a foreign country is a life changing experience where you not only study English in an immersive environment, but learn about a new culture, try new foods, and make friends that will last a lifetime. To help students adjust to living abroad, I provide counsel on topics ranging from questions about homestay families and American culture to ways of making new friends or coping with frustrating situations. Having lived abroad myself, I understand how important it is to have a friend and mentor who is a native and can help students transition successfully into life overseas.”

I’ve only spent a month and a half in Boston, but I have a thousand and even more memories. First of all, I’ve not only travelled to the USA but also around the world while being here because there are people from so many different countries, therefore we discover new cultures. I’ve loved the school, the lessons were animated and I got a lot of new vocabulary! I’ve stayed in residence, which I recommend. You have no time to get bored because you’re always invited to activities such as for playing basketball, going to the restaurant, to a hockey game….Great experience! Great meetings!
