It is obvious that one of the challenges of formal education in some part of the world in contemporary times is the inability of students at all levels of education to communicate effectively in both spoken and written English. This regrettable situation, no doubt, is partly responsible for the seemingly poor academic performance at primary, secondary and Tertiary levels. It is no longer news, for instance, that a good number of graduates of tertiary institutions hardly express themselves convincingly and effectively in both spoken and written English.
English language is a general language use for communication all over the world and it is right to teach English language from the initial stage of a child's life.
To me English is unique because I love seeing my students gaining from my own knowledge.

"She is a very good teacher and I’m looking forward to my next lessons!"
- Bettina
Took English lessons from Julie L.
"When I came to the US my English language level was not great. I had studied in school in Turkey, but my pronunciation was difficult to understand and the grammar was impossible for me. I have been taking classes for about 1.5 years now with Micah and another instructor that works for her, and I have improved a lot. I have even been giving presentations at my job now. I am an engineer.

I was not expecting to improve my level like that in 1.5 years. Learn English or Spanish LLC has talented teachers. Now I am planning to take the TOEFL in 6 months, and I will prepare for it with them. After that, my goal is a Masters degree. I highly recommend classes with them.

They are extremely effective teachers."

Learn English in Boston

About 1.5 billion people speak English, making it the most widely spoken language. Fewer than 400,000 English speakers, however, are actually native English speakers. English is one of the six official languages of the United Nations, and it's also one of the two official languages used on the International Space Station.

Over a billion people have learned English as a second (third, fourth, or fifth) language, and even more are learning it today. So when it comes to conjugating irregular English verbs or learning the language's numerous idioms - don’t fret. If you're hoping to study ESL in Boston, you’ll be surrounded by a supportive community and many qualified English teachers!

Why Take ESL Classes in Boston?

About one-third of Boston residents speak a language other than English at home. So, the city is ripe with resources for ESL students. Plus, you'll have plenty of non-native English speakers looking for others to practice English conversation with.

Several world-renowned institutes of higher education, such as Harvard, Boston College, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, are located in Boston and the surrounding areas. This makes it a wonderful and inviting setting to study new things. While you learn English in Boston, you'll be surrounded by thousands of other students who are serious about learning.

In addition, Boston is also a great place to experience American culture and history first-hand. You can always catch a Boston Red Sox game, or for a snippet of history, see the ships in Boston Harbor and visit the legendary Paul Revere House!

Selecting an ESL Teacher in Boston

In our directory, you'll find dozens of qualified tutors who teach English as a second language in Boston. Our vast selection allows for the flexibility to choose a native English speaker or a teacher who also speaks your first language. Additionally, many of our experienced tutors have their TEFL certification, current teaching license, and a college degree. 

One of our top-rated ESL tutors, Rosita R., teaches students of all ages and skill levels. She has hundreds of positive reviews from current and former students. One five-star review reads, "Best English teacher! She provides not only scripts but mp3s that I can download. The mini conversations that we go over every week help me a lot. I love learning English with her!"

When learning English in Boston with a private tutor, you’ll be able to focus and stay motivated with lessons customized to your interests and goals. Whether you’re studying English for school or business, an English tutor in Boston will help you master the language quickly and efficiently.

Where to Take English Classes in Boston

With TakeLessons, you can schedule Boston English classes at any time and any place that works for you, including your home. From Charlestown to Jamaica Plain, you can also take advantage of the city's sights while you study English in Boston. Meet your tutor at one of the many local parks, or grab lunch at Boston Chowda Co. and people-watch.

If you decide to enroll in online English classes in Boston, you'll need a strong internet connection and a quiet location for chatting with your tutor. Venture out to a private meeting room at the Boston Public Library or grab a table at Trident Booksellers and Cafe. You can also enjoy learning from the comfort of your own home.

Making the Most of Boston English Classes

There are a few ways you can prepare for your first English lesson. You can acquire all the supplies you’ll need (such as a notebook, note cards, pens, and highlighters) at a local store like Black Ink. 

Then, drop into the Boston Public Library to check out an English dictionary and a few comic books for fun reading practice. If you’d like something to keep, browse the thoughtfully curated shelves of Papercuts J.P. to select an enticing book in English. Make it your personal goal to learn how to read it from cover to cover!

Once you've had a couple of ESL classes in Boston, it’s best to start practicing your speaking skills with others who are learning English, too. There are several local clubs and groups with hundreds of members who get together regularly to make new friends and practice their English. 

To work on your listening comprehension, grab your new friends and have a chuckle over a comedy set at Laugh Boston. There are so many fun ways to use your newfound language skills in this city. However you plan to put your English to use, studying ESL in Boston with a private tutor will help you achieve fluency in no time!
