A successful summer at ELI!

The summer season at ELI is always an exciting time, as students come into the program to study English, deepen their understanding and appreciation of American culture and to explore the sights and heritage of Boston! This past summer season saw some 450 students from more than a dozen countries come into our welcoming campus, including students from Argentina, Brazil, China, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Poland, Russia, Spain, Taiwan & Vietnam. While many came as individuals, ELI also hosted a dozen groups of mainly high-school aged students. The students were challenged to improve their English in engaging, lively classes that encouraged them to learn from each other by sharing their cultural insights. Not only does this help them to improve their English, but it draws the student community closer together as they bridge cultural divides.

For diversions, the program offered trips around the city of Boston and Cambridge, showing off Harvard, MIT, the North End, Museum of Fine Arts, Freedom Trail, museums, shopping, sporting events, and more during the week and then weekend excursions to such places as Salem, Newport, Six Flags, Wrentham Outlets, and whale watching. While the excursions off campus were exciting, many students enjoyed more than anything else the time that they spent on-campus interacting with new friends from different countries in interactive games, dances, or just in pick-up soccer or volleyball matches. Many students made new lifelong friends during their short stay this summer at ELI.

We look forward to another high-energy summer in 2019 allowing more students to have enriching and trans-formative experiences! We’re excited to report that we already have groups putting in reservations to join us next summer!
