esl school in boston

Boston attracts hundreds of thousands of college students every year. In fact, many of the students who study at ASC English go on to pursue college studies in Boston. We even have partnership agreements with many colleges that allow you to take our English courses in order to prove your English proficiency for admissions.

If you’re preparing for college in the United States, attending ESL school in Boston this summer is a great idea. Here’s how English lessons will help you get ready for college and make it easier for you to adjust to your new home.

An Intensive English Course Can Help You Feel More Prepared for College Classes

If English is not your first language, attending college in English can feel a bit intimidating. Some of the terminology used in colleges, such as in essays and lectures, are different from everyday English. By enrolling in ESL school, you’ll learn both real-world English as well as academic English. This will help you feel more comfortable in an English-speaking college.

Even if you already speak English well, summer classes are an excellent opportunity to refresh what you already know. You’ll be taught by qualified instructors who can help you brush up on your English skills so that you can feel even more confident once you begin your college classes.

Attending ESL School Can Help You Adapt to Culture Shock Early On

The customs of the United States may be very different from what you’re used to. At first, these differences can seem exciting, but after the novelty has worn off you may have trouble feeling like you belong. This is called culture shock and it is a normal part of moving to a new country. Of course, you probably don’t want to be dealing with culture shock when you have exams to study for and classes to attend. By attending ESL school in the summer, you can adapt to culture shock earlier so that you don’t have to worry about it when college starts.

Even better, enrolling in our intensive English course can help you combat culture shock. For example, when moving to a new country, people often feel isolated because they don’t know anyone. Our ESL school, however, is very friendly and we welcome students from all over the world. You’ll be able to meet others through the social events we organize. That way, when college begins you’ll already have a social circle and you will feel more at home in your new city.
