Boston, founded in 1630, is without a doubt one of the United States' most emblematic and attractive cities. With around 400 academic institutions, Boston is essentially the mecca of education and culture. Boston and its surroundings offer students a spectacular setting in which they can enjoy typical red brick nooks and crannies or stroll along the Charles River promenade.

The school is located in one of the city's main university areas, on the Fenway Campus, in a very tranquil area very close to downtown Boston and all of the city's major attractions. It enjoys modern facilities which means that our students have, in addition to the classrooms, access to a lounge and a library.
A total of 20 lessons per week are held every morning morning from Monday to Friday, averaging 4 lessons per day. On the very first day, students will take a language test to determine the appropriate English course level.
Each class consists of no more than 15 students of different nationalities and each lesson is equivalent to 45 minutes of class.
Carefully chosen host families who provide students with a safe and pleasant place in which to learn English. Students will have a full board meal plan (lunches from Monday to Friday will be eaten in the school dining hall) and will stay in double, triple or 4-person rooms with other students of different nationalities.
Another option is in a university residence in double or triple rooms and with full board every day of the week. The residence is located on the university campus.
Just as important as learning the English language is that our students get to enjoy a variety of sport and cultural activities during their stay. For that reason the program includes a varied bill of activities after class from sports (both outside and in the sports center) to visits and excursions to the most emblematic areas of Boston and the surrounding area.
For the duration of the program, students will have supervision and assistance provided by local counselors as well as our own counselors, who accompany students from Madrid Barajas airport, stay for the duration and return with the group to Barajas.
