Millions of international students study English as a second language.
While you can attain some proficiency studying the language in the classroom,
in order to take your English skills to the next level you will need to
live and study in an English-speaking country. When you attend, for example,
a language school in Boston, you will have the opportunity to learn from native speakers and to use
your English every day. More reasons to study abroad include:
Immersion in an English-Speaking Environment
ESL classes will give you the foundational skills you need to improve your
writing, reading, and listening skills in English, but to improve your
speaking skills you need to practice every day in the real world.
Studying abroad in an English-speaking country provides you with these opportunities.
And in a cosmopolitan city like Boston, you will likely be able to find
people who speak your native language when you need a bit of a break from
your English studies.
Exposure to Local Culture
You will never really understand the culture of another country unless
you live there, even for a short period of time. When you take the same
busses and trains, eat the same food, and visit the same stores as locals,
you begin to understand what daily life is like for people who live in
a different country than you. You will also learn how to talk more like
a native speaker when you hear the accents and figures of speech used
by local English speakers.
Opportunity to Attend a University
Many English schools have partnerships with colleges and universities,
so if you want to earn a degree from an institution of higher education
in the U.S., attending one of these schools can help you with the university
