"BIA is awesome."

Kailin from Taiwan writes:
BIA is awesome. There are many English language programs at BIA. You can practice speaking, listening, writing, and reading a lot at class. Besides that, when you are out of class, there are a lot of activities like speaking club, Freedom Trail walking tour, museum day and so on. Unlike other schools, BIA is by far the most interesting because it's like a family. Don't be hesitant, BIA is a pretty excellent language school.
We are very proud of our community here at BIA and our school spirit shows in our enthusiastic students and alumni. Our regular activities give students a chance to explore Boston and practice new English skills in a fun and relaxed setting. Come to BIA and join our family of ESL students!

"BIA is the best!"

Hiroko from Japan writes:
My name is Hiroko. I came from Japan to study English. I had attended other English schools in Boston before but BIA is the best. TOEFL class was really effective for the real test. Teachers provide us with good skills and materials. Furthermore, they equip the PC lab so we can practice the TOEFL prep test everyday. All the staff are so nice and energetic! They are trying to stimulate all students with interesting activities. I joined a session for grad school here. I learned a lot of things and got advice from some teachers who graduated university or grad school! Tuition is also reasonable!
We take great pride and care in making a welcoming and inclusive educational environment. Contact us today to see what a difference quality ESL instruction can make in your life.

"This is the perfect school for you to learn English."

Minji from South Korea writes:
I've been in this school for about 7 months. I took a TOEFL class and got a really high score on the TOEFL test. Anyway, this is the perfect school for you to learn English. All teachers are great and nice. Their teaching skill is very good! Also, people in the school are all kind and nice. The assistants are, without a doubt, helpful when you are in any trouble such as housing, your life in the USA, and, of course, study. I want to recommend you to be in BIA. I won't forget this school or people.
BIA is proud to provide quality student services. We care deeply about the happiness and success of all our students. We are available to help you with any questions you have about living and studying in Boston. Come experience the BIA community for yourself!
