Boston is known throughout the US and the world as a center of education and research, and has a culture built around its’ academic community.
EC Boston’s monthly Lecture Series is designed to expose students to regular American life outside the school. For each lecture, Bostonians come in and talk about their lives, their jobs, or something they’re passionate about. These speakers are interesting people but they’re NOT teachers, so students will be challenged by real English spoken at a normal conversational speed. Academic Year students are required to attend and participate in the discussion to earn their certificate, but any students can come and listen in! In April, a local couple demonstrated the famous dance known as the Tango, and the students got into the act as well, practicing the spicy steps and graceful movements that make this dance one of the most entrancing in the world.
