"Very good language school"

Andrea Szabó, student from Hungary

ELC Boston language school was a good choice.The teachers and housing staff are friendly, kind and always helpful.The classes were very interesting, mostly the conversation classes, my teacher was well-prepared and creative. The variety of the afternoon activities helps to get closer to the other students from different countries and cultures and discover the city as well.I liked the location of the school, it' s in the downtown Boston, the city, where the public transport is well- organized.

"I was always excited to go to the school"

Johanna Lea Karlhuber, student from Germany

I especially liked communication class. My communication class teacher was Dave and I really appreciated the way he teached. My grammar class was a little bit to low for me. I also liked american culture class. I learned a lot about the american culture but also about the culture of other students which was really interesting. The location was also good. You had many opportunities to get there. I really liked the people there. The students as well as the teachers were very friendly and I felt comfortable.

visa

Visa support

We cannot apply for visas on behalf of students. However, the school can supply you with all the documentation you need to support your visa application.

If you are studying full time in the United States for more than 18 hours per week, you will receive an I-20 that you need to submit to the US embassy along with your F-1 student visa application. The I-20 has a SEVIS tracking number on it. Students who wish to apply for a student visa must pay the SEVIS fee online before going to the US embassy or consulate for their visa interview.

Your I-20 will be sent to your home address by regular mail at no charge to you. If you wish to receive your paperwork by express mail, you will be charged $75 when you register.

Please note that United States law states that an I-20 can only be issued to students who intend to pursue full-time English language studies. United States law does not permit students to study part-time with an F-1 Student Visa. If you are studying for less than 18 hours per week, you have to apply for a Visitor Visa (B1/B2) on your own.
