Student Testimonial

I have been learning here the other cultures and the other languages, so I have many experiences. When I came here my level was Elementary, now my level is Low-Intermediate. How to improve my English I’m always talking with my foreign friends, even Korean friends I also use English. I’d like to speak with foreign people that is why I decided to become a Student Ambassador.

Teacher Testimonial

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!
