Survival English for International Visitors in the US

Being familiar with the language is key to a successful trip. That’s why CSI has designed this course to help you easily learn the key English language skills needed in areas such as booking flights or hotels, confirming reservations, and asking for directions. Mastering these skills will allow you to travel the US with ease and confidence.

US Culture and History Immersion

Boston is the capital and most populous city of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the United States. It is one of the oldest cities in the United States, making it rich with culture and history.

Field trips may include a tour of the Boston Common, a trip to the historical Freedom Trail, a traditional American baseball game at Fenway Park, a culinary experience at one of many of the major neighborhoods in Boston, or trips to some of the dozens of museums located in the city.
