Hi, we are a family from Chile and we came to Embassy Boston to make one of our family dreams come true. For a long time we have had a dream: to move to another country to study English all together.
When the circumstances were right we were able to plan the trip. We began to analyze our choices. We saw a lot of options in United States, Australia and Europe, and finally we decided that the best place was Boston.
After we decided on the city, we began the search for the place where we wanted to study. We looked at many different institutes and one of them was Embassy English.
It was our best option to study as a family because it is very personalised and they gave us the choice to study all together. So we started by talking to Linda Walsh, Centre Director of Embassy Boston, on email and in the end we are here!
We are a family of 5 people: Francisco (father), Alejandra (mother), Francisco Javier, Augusto and Blanca (three children).
In Embassy, Alejandra and Blanca are in the same level, Francisco and his son Augusto are also together, but in a different level, and Francisco Javier is alone in a different class.
Since the first day of our classes until today, two months have been passed, and our English has improved very much.
Also we have spent great days with our classmates and with our teachers.
We all believe that learning English is very important because it will be useful for our jobs, for studying, for travelling, and also if we want to have more knowledge about other cultures or other countries.
The best thing about learning in Embassy is that the teachers and all the staff are very nice. There is always someone to help you, and that makes you feels that you are at home.
Also, you can have a lot of friends from different countries, and is very interesting because you learn about other cultures and other countries, and of course you have to do everything in English.
This is another reason why our English has been improved and now we can have fluent conversations using the correct words and the correct verb tenses.
Of course, the most important reason our English has improved is the classes and following the recommendations of teachers. One of them is that we have to try to talk between us in English. Also we have to watch movies and T.V. without translation or subtitles.
We have a lot of good memories such as our family doing many things together. Learning English at the same time, in the same place, sharing the same classmates, the same teachers, we are sure that will be an unforgettable experience in our life.
If someone we know needs to learn English the first thing we are going to tell him or her is GO TO EMBASSY ENGLISH BOSTON!!!!
Because it is the best place to learn this language, and Boston is a great city to live with a family and feel comfortable, experience history, culture and enjoy security and safety.
After our course, in the afternoon, all of us are go to do something that we love, like playing an instrument, doing a sport, something like a hobby but in English, to continue learning.
We like to organize trips to places near to Boston or around USA in our spare time.
The most surprising thing in our experience is that every day there is an interesting thing to do because in Embassy plans activities so you have different choices every day.
We think that our favorite phrase here will be, “you know what I mean” because all Americans say that all the time.
Our top 3 favorite places in Boston are Embassy English, the area where we live, and the old streets of Beacon Hill because in those places we feel good.
The local food are a lot of fish and seafood, and also there are a lot of restaurants from other countries, so its okay.
Well but we decide to came as family because its the best way to learn English together, and at the same time live a unique experience all together to grow as a family.
Francisco Jr, Augusto, and Blanca say that they want to say thanks to their parents to give them this experience, and all the family wants to say thanks to Embassy because they had made our main dream come true.
We are very happy to have chosen Embassy Boston as our institute to learn English and we think that it was a great idea and we are thankful for choosing Embassy Boston.
If you are looking for a good institute this is, in our opinion, the best place to learn English and to have a great experience.
FRANCISCO, ALEJANDRA, FRANCISCO JR, AUGUSTO AND BLANCA
