The majority of our students choose to live with a family, as it provides a great opportunity to experience American culture and home life, and to practice English outside of the classroom. Host families come in all shapes and sizes: couples with children, single parents, or retired couples.

All host families have been pre-screened, to ensure that the family is friendly and accommodating, and that the home is located in a safe neighborhood. Most families live in the Boston suburbs, and all homes are located close to public transportation.

You can choose to have a single; you can also decide whether to eat breakfast and dinner with your host(s) or prepare your own meals.

Exclusive Residence

Harvard Square is also within easy walking distance. It is just two subway stops from to the school. Total journey time to school is 20-25 minutes.

The house is designed for those who want the independence of living on their own but with the security of having a staff member on hand with whom to practice their English.
