The school is located in the center of Boston, excellent location, close to the metro. The school occupies two floors, rather compact. Responsive staff, you can always ask for help. Classes are built in such a way that we repeat a lot - it's very effective, I remember literally everything that was in class. In the center of the lesson, it is always worth working out the conversational skills. Teachers in general are all very sociable. I took a long course, so I changed 2 families - both were goodl, the second family was a little further away. I still communicate with both families! By the way, the school helped me with the move. The school has an excellent program of activities for the whole week. Most of all I liked that the school organized a trip to the largest animal shelter in Boston! I liked the school very much! I already miss the school, staff and students. Thank you, Linguatrip! I wish you that you continue to develop!...

It is hard to say, but today was my last day at FLS Boston Commons... Of course, everything has an end, but I hate that! Anyway, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger:) I really enjoyed studying here, in Boston. My GRE verbal and vocabulary teachers were some of the best teachers I have ever had. Also I got 3 certificates today: one for successful completion of level 12. Yahoo, I have finally finished upper-intermediate and I can start advanced (actually, I finished advanced in Kazakhstan, but it doesn't count), the second one for demonstrating OUTSTANDING🏼 academic performance and achieving a GPA of over 90% and the last one for perfect attendance Combo! I'm the only person who got 3 certificates out of 3, but it was obvious, who will get it if not me?! I am so modest, ain't I, lol. I would like to thank Linguatrip and Marina Mogilko for everything. Marina, you are the best! ...

Studying at the Boston school "FLS Boston Commons" brought me a lot of experience in terms of learning English. I lived in a host family in the city of Malden for 2 weeks, which is located near Boston (about 30-40 minutes by public transport). To be honest, before the trip, I was very worried about who I was going to live with - it was my first visit to USA and, especially, the experience of living in a family alien to me. My family treated me very well and was always happy to help me guiding in a new city for me. Special thanks for a well-chosen family for living, for me it was very important!  At school, I really liked the fact that I could communicate at the level of the English language that I have now, not embarrassed by anyone. Administration and teachers were always happy to help and support with incomprehensible and at first difficult situations for me. I met many people from different cities and countries with whom I communicate til now. Also the location of FLS is excellent, in the heart of Boston, near the metro, which allows you to easily navigate the city and stroll through the beautiful streets in the center. I want to say a big thank you to Alexey from Lingua Trip, who approached my questions with responsibility!...

The school is average, not too good and not too bad. Firstly, I had 15 hours of core classes per week. But only half of this time is informative, other half is waste of time (probably it depends on teacher). Secondly, my workshop is vocabulary (5 hours per week), the teacher is great (Joe). I insist and recommend to take this course. The only thing I really like here is GRE classes. Verbal and math teachers are wonderful (Jenna and Jessica B.). However, after the first week Jessica quit her job and I had 2 hours of verbal, without math. Finally, talking about host family, the family is okay, they are not Americans, firstly the school sent me Mexican family, then Moroccan. I asked for American family, but my efforts were in vain. I also need to mention that I live in Malden (45-60 minutes from Boston downtown by train+bus). Total rate: 7 out of 10...

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! ...

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....
