Study in a Vibrant Waterfront City That’s Full of History

Boston is a beautiful waterfront city with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. As one of the oldest cities in America, it’s full of historical attractions like the Boston Harbor and the Bunker Hill Monument, and features charming Federal and Greek Revival Style architecture, with cobbled streets in many of its older neighbourhoods. Historical tours and sightseeing can be a great way to practice your English on the weekends while learning about the city and its history. Students taking their TOEFL preparation course can also take time off to visit some of Boston’s world class restaurants and famous shopping areas like Faneuil Hall Marketplace and Newbury Street.

In addition to its historical monuments and bustling urban areas, Boston is also home to a number of parks and green spaces. This includes the Boston Common, the oldest city park in the United States, which features ice-skating in the winter when the Boston Common Frog Pond freezes over.
