My EC Story: Marta

“I am Marta and I’m from Spain. I’ve studied at EC for 5 months! I lived in the North End apartments for the duration of my stay and the location was my favorite part (less than 10 min walk to the school). The neighborhood is called little Italy and it is very nice and quiet. There is a great deal of restaurants and a really good atmosphere. EC is unique because of the community and making friends from other countries. Boston is an amazing city and has many young students. For those of you trying to study English, I would recommend you to always strive to improve and never give up. Sometimes it takes a lot of effort, but you will get a great reward when you achieve it successfully. Thank you EC Boston!” – Marta  Click here to find out more about the English courses in Boston and how you too can embark on a learning English adventure.

Our student at Patriots Game

Why you should watch the Superbowl on Sunday!

What’s so good about football anyways? Everyone here in Boston is excited about what’s happening on Sunday! The New England Patriots, Boston’s professional American football team, are facing off against the Los Angeles Rams in the Superbowl! However, for many people football is a very confusing sport. As a result some students struggle to understand why Boston is so obsessed with American football. Thankfully, we have Brazil’s biggest football fan, Francisco Goldenberg Zarif, enrolled in our school! In this blog, he will explain the rules and why football is so great! Introducing Francisco!   Hello EC Boston students and those reading the blog! My name is Francisco, I’m 22 and come all the way from Brazil! I’ve been asked to talk a little about my favorite sport in this blog. As far as I`m concerned, every time someone thinks about my country and sports, soccer immediately comes to mind. Today though, I’ll be talking about something a little bit different: American football! Wait, you like football but you’re from Brazil? How does that happen?   I first got in touch with the sport about 12 years ago, when my father, a fan of the sport since he was young, tried to convince me that the game was much more than big guys hitting themselves for no reason.

It is basically a battle for territory, in which strategy and discipline are your biggest strengths, incredibly more important than brute force! In a nutshell, both teams have their offensive and defensive units. The offense tries to take the ball to the end of the defense territory, following a certain group … Read more
