NESE - The New England School of English

Boston, United States

NESE, Boston (Harvard Square). A school recognized for its excellence. Best choice in the USA.

Because of its excellence, NESE has been recognized and accredited by a number of different organizations. From the teachers to the staff, everyone at NESE is committed to offering each student an exceptional school environment, one that is challenging, enjoyable, and entirely supportive of students.

Harvard Square is a focal point of student activity and one of the most interesting and dynamic student centers in the United States. Our average class size is 12 students. Small classes ensure lively discussions, frequent student participation, and intensive student-teacher interaction.

At NESE, students learn more than just language; they learn American culture as well. Students are required to have textbooks for classes and will be given homework from them, but they should be prepared for much more. In class, they will read newspapers and magazines, watch videos, role-play, do exercises in the computer lab, and interview Americans.

Students have the choice of participating in NESE's Intensive Program (9:00-3:15 each day) or in its Semi-Intensive Program (9:00-12:30 each day). Both programs offer 10 levels of language and culture training, full access to all NESE facilities, and a choice of either dormitory or homestay accommodation.

In addition to NESE's regular Intensive and Semi-Intensive Programs, elective courses, such as Business English for Professionals, TOEFL Preparation, and private instruction are options that exist for our students.

All classes at NESE are divided according to English level and age. This means that a professional (+30 years old) has classmates who are in positions similar to his: professionals who want to study in a serious environment that caters to their specific needs.

Semi-Intensive Program

9:00 to 12:30 Five Days per Week

NESE’s 10-level Semi-Intensive Program is ideal for students who would like to improve their English but are equally interested in other aspects of life in the United States. Because this program lasts only half a day, students have time to travel and explore other interests. NESE students participating in the Semi-Intensive Program have full access to all NESE facilities, such as the choice of a dormitory or homestay accommodation, weekend trips, student clubs, and unlimited free access to e-mail and the Internet. Students participating in this program are also welcome to spend their out-of-class time using NESE’s academic facilities in order to study, listen to English-training CDs, or watch videos at NESE.

Host Family

30 minutes from school on public transport
Minimum age — 17
Half board

NESE’s American homestay program is designed to provide cultural exposure to American family life in a warm and supportive environment. It is your home away from home. Your homestay family will provide you with friendship, care, and an ideal opportunity to use your English and experience American culture.

NESE carefully selects all homestay families, and our families have a great deal of experience hosting foreign students. However, it is important to note that although there are certain customs and practices that are common throughout the United States, it is difficult to describe a “typical American family”. There are a variety of lifestyles in the United States, and NESE works with homestays that both reflect this variety and are also eager to welcome NESE students.

In fact, NESE home stays present a realistic view of American culture and enable us to best meet our students varying needs. For example, NESE homestays can be single parents, two-parent families, people who may or may not have children, people who have indoor pets (typically cats and dogs), people who may or may not allow smoking in their home, and people who may come from various ethnic and religious backgrounds. In other words, a typical homestay reflects what the United States really is today.

Often families introduce students to new activities. You might learn to water-ski in Maine, sail in Cape Cod, or ski in Vermont. Whatever parts of New England you and your family explore, you can be sure that you will remain friends with them for years to come.

Studio apartment in Boston

20 minutes from school on public transport
Minimum age — 30
No meals

NESE’s “Professionals Only” studio apartments (for students over the age of 30) are located in the heart of Boston’s most prestigious neighborhood, the Back Bay. Historic row-houses (known as “Brownstones”) are typical of this area, and NESE’s apartments are on the garden level of this type of building. The units are only a short walk to Newbury Street, Boston’s most fashionable shopping and café street and only a one- minute walk to the Charles River, with its spectacular sunsets. Baseball fans will be pleased to know that Fenway Stadium (with its accompanying range of restaurants and music venues) is less than a 10-minute-walk from the units. Further, just across the river is MIT, with its wealth of events open to the general community and its gym for NESE students’ use for an extra cost. The bus stop for the direct bus to Harvard Square is a few steps from the front door.

NESE’s studio apartments are air-conditioned with fully equipped kitchens, linens and towels, TV, DVD/Blu-Ray player, and wireless high-speed internet connection. Laundry facilities are in each unit. Both the Back Bay with its historic tree-lined streets, and NESE apartments, with their modern conveniences and elegance, provide an ideal atmosphere in which professionals can live and study.
