Why our students love TALK Boston

The restaurants. The city has a range of amazing restaurants and bars. Originally known for lobster rolls and clam chowder, the Boston food scene has grown over the years to offer everything from delicious mouth water street food to classic fine wining and dining. Our students who visit the city certainly have their favorite eateries!
The accent and the slang. Bostonian’s have a distinct and peculiar accent, which some of our students have described as “interesting” and “unique”. Specifically Bostonian’s don’t really pronounce the ‘r’ sound. So for example, words with an “AR” spelling are pronounced with more of an “AH” sounding – ‘park’ is pronounced ‘pahks’ in a Boston accent. This peculiarity is something that so many of our students love!
In addition, to the accent, Bostonian’s also have their own slang, words and phrases only used in the Boston area. If you choose to come and learn English at TALK, no doubt you’ll get a chance to immerse yourself in the cultural language!
“I loved the experience in Boston. It’s a fantastic city to explore and a great place to discover many interesting things. The University Tour Package was a great opportunity to have an approach to the greatest American universities and the English program at TALK School was a great chance to improve my English and to meet people from all around the World.” – Marisol Calderón, TALK Boston student from Ecuador.
