I had just fond memories from this trip! However, there were some drawbacks. I wasn't lucky with a host family, meal options left much to be desired.

Entertaining programme was great, excursions were held by real students of Boston Universities.

School is OK, but some lessons were boring, we repeated a lot, moreover, there were a lot of Russians.

Big thanks to LinguaTrip!

I chose FLS Boston for GMAT preparation because of good reviews and I liked the school a lot! During my trip I was able to visit Harvard campus which is located not far from Boston. I liked the lessons and now I am busy with admission process.

The location of the school is great, but you can live pretty far away (for me 40 min). I didn't live with Americans, and my "housing mother" didn't live with us, but in another house. . Fortunately I had a really good roommate which made everything better. The classes were really good, I loved the morning class (core class) and the teacher was really good. He made the class fun and interesting. (The best English teacher I have ever had).The school usually charges more for some activities that would be cheaper if you went without the school. If you are not dissatisfied with the course you are taking it is easy to change which is really good. overall I think it was a great experience and I loved the classes, teachers and I got many good friends.
