Destination

A language stay in Boston

Boston , the capital and largest city of the state of Massachusetts, is one of the most desired student destinations in the United States. Its intense cultural life, prestigious schools and universities, festivals, animated night life and charming architecture attract students from across the United States and the world.

As the economic and cultural centre of New England, Boston does not resemble other American metropolises; the centre boasts a number of colonial buildings, the streets are windy and not on a grid pattern and the city has a number of pedestrian and bike zones.
Nicknamed the "cradle of freedom", Boston is the oldest of the new cities of the United States. A scent of England, still alive in the home as in habits, contributes to the charm of this landmark of American history, famous for its cobbled streets and monuments, that alongside the modern skyscrapers of the district business. The capital of Massachusetts has preserved its multiple identity, shaped by four centuries since the influx of immigrants from places like Ireland and Italy in the nineteenth century. But far from being locked in its past, this great university centre has developed into a major cultural and economic centre of the United States.
