Student Testimonial

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!

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.”
