I took one to one English courses for 2 weeks at LSI
The classes were from 8:00 to 9:00 am.
I was not tired , but inspired during the class.
The teacher precisely focused on what I wanted to learn.
Thanks to that, now I can say I am making progress with my English speaking skill.
The organisation was good, but it was very noisy caused by construction work on the street.
Good mix of international students.
Professors and administrative staff were always very present, available and responsive. I really liked the good mood that prevailed during the classes.Voir les détails » Lire plus...
The location of the school is excellent, in the courses you meet people from several countries, which forces you to speak in English so that you can get to know them better, because they speak another languageVoir les détails » Lire plus...
I spent only 1 week in the school, but the experience was awesome!
Everthing in the school was great and I made new friends, during the classes and outside the school everybody speaks only English so it was a good experience to practice and improve my english skills.
Hi, my experience was so good. The best was my teacher Glenn. He was a very good teacher and taught me a lot. The school was nice but i didn't like the location near Chinatown. The school didn't have good activities to do after the classes. The accommodation was bad. The apartment was old and dirty and very far from the school.Voir les détails » Lire plus...
That was a very nice experience. Learning English without pressure with great teacher and staff.Voir les détails » Lire plus...
I expected a class wherein I would repeat the grammar lesson from the very beginning. In which I would repeat every grammar rule systematically within the time I am in class.
If it was the case, I would have needed 10 weeks, which I was not told before and I could not afford.
LSI put two levels together in one class (intermediate and advanced), which is obviously not as good if every level has its own class.
In the afternoon classes I could only choose between a few options, such as TOEFL, but I wanted to prepare for CPE. Thus, I took TOEFL because it was the best option for me, but again not what I really expected.
The teacher (Nell) was great, she really made a good job. Her classes were never boring, she made really good and funny exercises for us, she used loads of different methods and materials. I was lucky to sit in her classes.
The location of the school is great and the facilities are good.
Since I am here with my husband and I will stay in the Boston area for about a year whereas the other students are here for a few weeks and they are much younger. I didn't go to any activity and I didn't avail of the housing.
My first lesson day was strange, because, although the exams on Monday were really well done, I thought that the Advanced Level was too difficult for me. After 2/3 days, my English was totally unlocked, thanks to my teachers. I really appreciated the other ways that the teachers used to teach us topics that were usually boring.
The location was comfortable, just like the facilities.
I didn't have the opportunity to enjoy all the activities that the school offered, (also because I stayed in Boston for only three weeks) but I could see photos and tales from friends that had been there for 5/6 months and the activities were really fun!
I'm sorry but I don't have any things I didn't appreciate!
The teachers in LSI are good, they help me to improve my English, they correct me when was necessary and I learned new things. The classes are very good, they used different strategies for teach us the lessons. The college is easy to find, and they have different activities for practices English after classes and know Boston. The homestay was excellent. I enjoyed my time with my house parents, they make feel if I was in my house and they help me to improve my English too.Voir les détails » Lire plus...

I had the best time ever! Tim was extremely nice and coordinated everything when I wasn`t able to participate in a class of +50 people. The course was great, I learned a lot, especially grammar. The teacher in the morning was excellent and so was the group.
The best of all was the teacher in the afternoon; it was a blast!!!!!!!
Thank you for everything I would definitely come back or recommend the school. You have excellent classes and a very professional staff.
The teachers were great. I didn't like the location and I couldn't enjoy the activities.Voir les détails » Lire plus...
The structure of the school was very good, but at the last week they put us in a level that didn't have water. We only had a bathroom. This thing disappointed me, but if I have to grade it, I'd give 8 for score. The people in the background are very helpful, but the schedule after class can be better.Voir les détails » Lire plus...
I find that it is very important to have at least a couple of courses with the right level chosen, make homework, communicate, be open, etc.Voir les détails » Lire plus...
Excellent school! I liked it. It was very good. Also, I met a lot of friends and people from other countries like Arabia, China, Japan, and more.Voir les détails » Lire plus...
Classes not bad I mean the room size, but the seats are very bad and uncomfortable. Add to that school was divided into three floors in the building. Teachers are welcoming to others and friends for all. School is located very well and it's easy to arrive by public transportation. On each floor has bathrooms and water. Most of the classrooms have air-conditioning. In other classrooms there are some fans. There are computers, free printer, free internet. Activities are useful and fun. Housing not too good not too bad.Voir les détails » Lire plus...
I only spent 2 weeks in LSI in the TOEFL class. The school was a kind of family setting located in a very noisy place probably due to public works. And sometimes, we had to move from our class. I appreciated the fact that we could have lunch in a nice environment (Rebecca Café) at affordable prices.
I liked the school spirit. That could be seen through easy relationships with had with teachers and the school management.
I really appreciated my 2 classes' dynamics, based on young teachers' abilities to innovate. Even in a boring Toefl class, I had the feeling of learning without pressure. Through interactive activities, games, group works and even playing American football contributed to create a very conducive learning environment.
I also found that outdoors activities were very rich and each of us could find interesting activities to attend. I loved the restaurant and the trip to Hyannis.
For housing, even though the family was smart, friendly and always ready to help us, I did not like that area. Sometimes, at night, you did not feel safe.
I could suggest improvements in 3 ways:
1. Enriching students' vocabulary through a kind of 10 minute review (students making sentences based on new words) every morning, to help new words to be integrated in our vocabulary. Thus at the end of the week you know how to use words, idioms and phrasal verbs seen during the week.
2. Having pronunciation exercises. Currently I am taking pronunciation courses to be able to master the sounds in English and that basic skill is pivotal for learners to be easily understood. And in our class, some students really needed (like me) pronunciation exercises.
3. Maybe think in a future about having more space.
I really loved the good times I had in LSI. Both the teachers I had were very prepared and funny! Finally I found the best way to learn a subject! All the people I met were friendly and talkative. One week was not enough. I wish I had more time! But I think I'll be back one of these years.Voir les détails » Lire plus...

I really enjoyed studying at LSI. I was taught with highly-skilled teachers, who were always ready to help and explain things, which confused me about language. My English level definitely has risen, owing to this school. I had 4 teachers, but the best one in my opinion is Mike. He was so kind for all of us, and the style of teaching is more like talking to a friend in relaxed and understandable form. Moreover, he has a brilliant sense of humor! I met so many people from different continents, some of them became my friends and we still keep in touch. overall, it was a great time, I would never regret about choosing LSI from all other schools in Boston.Voir les détails » Lire plus...

What I liked was: the tactic and style of teaching, the number of student in class, the good location, and a very friendly staff. And what I didn't like was: the class equipment and the small building.Voir les détails » Lire plus...
I think it was the best time in my life... I met so many friends and I think that I have improved my english so far with excellent teachers and great activities. It was so nice to do this course in Brisbane. Hopefully when I was there, weather was not so bad... There is my neighbour from Canary Islands doing the course now. I enjoyed a lot and I told him to go there and he is very happy too thanks BEST WISHESVoir les détails » Lire plus...
I don't know why the school offered me a change to a semi group class, but this was the best.
I really enjoyed this class with my teacher Bob and my classmate from Japan Yhio, who is a manager and mature person like me.
With them the classes were excellent !!!
On the other hand, my homestay wasn't that I had hoped. I told Leslie this. I hope you could describe better what type of house, distance, room, bathroom and general conditions the student will have. The homester was nice with me and this helped me to feel much better.
Finally, Boston was wonderful, very beautiful and exciting city !!!

Le centre LSI de Boston est situé dans un immeuble commercial de grès brun aux abords de Chinatown, près du quartier des théâtres et du centre financier.
Questions? Notre personnel ainsi que les anciens étudiants de Language Studies International (LSI): Boston y répondent.Poser une question
The building does not have a parking lot. In fact, we would not recommend driving/parking a car in Boston as the traffic is unpredictable and the parking is quite expensive. The LSI school building is less than a 5-minute walk from the MBTA South Station, the major public transportation hub for the downtown area, connecting many bus, subway, and commuter rail lines. The building is also within walking distance of several other bus and subway stops, including the Chinatown stop on the MBTA Orange Line.
There are no separate materials fees. We provide students with books to use during their stay here, but they cannot keep the books and must return them before they leave.
Language Studies International, USA can accept students on a tourist visa or on the visa waiver for a short course of study. People whose main purpose is to study should come on a student visa. People whose main purpose is tourism can come on the tourist visa or visa waiver.
You should be aware that if you choose to travel on a tourist visa or visa waiver but tell immigration that you are coming here to study, the immigration officer at the Port of Entry (airport) may ask for a student visa which you not have. In this case, the you may not be allowed entry to the United States.
With that said, many of our students come on the tourist visa or visa waiver. The decision about which visa to obtain is entirely up to you.
The ability of a student to "reach the next level" is quite subjective and depends greatly on the individual student's capabilities and motivation. If the student attends class, works hard, and completes the homework, we have no doubt that his general English and preparedness for the TOEFL will increase.
The school does not offer conditional
letters of acceptance, only regular acceptance.
Since we do not have academic requirements at LSI our
acceptance is not conditional on academic requirements. Usually if a school
issues a conditional letter the letter will state that the student has all
of the requirements of the institution except the English requirement. If
the student achieves the required level than the student can attend the
college or university.
By choosing this option, the student would participate in an Integrated Skills course in the morning and TOEFL-prep in the afternoon. This course not only prepares students for the TOEFL ibT, but also helps them to greatly improve their reading and listening comprehension, academic writing skills, vocabulary, and ability to organize their thoughts verbally. TOEFL-prep is a very popular course at our school. Please note that the student must test into at least the intermediate language level in order to enroll in this course. If he does not test into at least the intermediate language level, he will be able to attend our Conversational English course.
