"Our son attended EXPLO English and has come back to us as a changed boy. In addition to impressively improving his English, he is so much more mature, independent and confident."
Lamia Q., Parent, EXPLO English
"EXPLO English was an amazing experience. I was able to see historic sites in Boston, learn more about American culture, and improve my English tremendously."
Eric L., Student, EXPLO English
"I was a little scared to travel alone for the first time where I would be living in an native English environment. But, in no more than two days, I overcame my fears and recognized how rewarding the program was going to be."
Fernando M., EXPLO English Alum
Immerse yourself in hands-on experiences. Every moment at EXPLO is an opportunity to practice your English speaking skills. You might report the news or put on a puppet show. Take a trip to the local ice cream shop to order in English — including all the toppings! Your English-language understanding and speaking confidence will emerge naturally — and because you’re at EXPLO, you’ll have fun in the process.Program Details
