Harvard inspiration included
The language school in Boston – the Eurocentres partner school NESE – has teachers who studied at the famous Harvard University, which is right next door. Harvard University is also the setting for many sophisticated Hollywood films such as Good Will Hunting’ with Matt Damon as a highly gifted student, ‘The Firm’ with Tom Cruise as a Harvard graduate, or ‘The Social Network’.’ Just as it does in the films, Harvard University also radiates intellectual charm in real life. You’ll certainly notice it during your language holiday in Boston. Students value the high quality of the tuition at the school and the excellent support that they receive from the entire school team. Just like a film crew, everyone at the school will ensure that you enjoy your time ‘on set’.
During your language study stay in Boston, you will quickly learn good English while simultaneously getting to know and love the capital of the state of Massachusetts on the east coast of the United States. Your host family will give you an insight into the life of a typical American family, or maybe you will stay with an older, single person who has plenty of time to speak English with you. What do students in Boston actually do? They walk or cycle along the Charles river, linger or shop on the shopping mile, marvel at the architecture on Newbury Street and the famous sandstone houses in the historic Back Bay district, or take a ‘Duck Tour’ through the streets of the city.

A typical day at NESE Boston
After referring to the homework, the grammar and idioms, lesson has ended for Donald, the teacher – it is time for the 10.30 break. Nils stays in the classroom with a few other students in order to clear up some questions that Donald answers competently and in detail. Nils then starts to do his homework, as he won’t have much time to do it on the weekend. He is going on a trip to New York with three of his friends – Marcel from Switzerland, Abdullah from Dubai and Sebastian from Germany – whom he met here in Boston. Alyson from Administration has helped them to plan their trip and given them a few insider tips.
During the lunch break, Nils goes to the computer room to complete the homework for which he needs to use the computer, to catch up on the latest news and to write some emails to friends back in Sweden. He still has enough time to enjoy a sandwich, which he bought in the café around the corner, in the student lounge. During his stay in Boston, Nils is staying with Donna, a cheerful, older Bostonian who takes in students from all over the world throughout the year. Photos and postcards from everywhere decorate her refrigerator – and Donna has a story to tell about each of them.
