We went last year - really liked it! I have friends who were in the camps of America, but it was nice that I was the only one who went to Boston (everyone mostly goes to New York and Los Angeles, Miami). My friend is studying in Chicago.
I had the usual summer course, but there was another discovery option: there were even more interesting themed events and trips.
I liked Boston very much: a large, modern, beautiful city, a lot of urban architecture, glass buildings - I don’t like medieval Europe, I like these skyscrapers and super-modern architects, so every walk was perfect, I wanted to photograph every step.
A lot of guys are Americans. In addition to their openness, I would note that it was easy to communicate with them: they have simpler, unmarked English, so there were no problems with misunderstanding or accent. My English is probably closer to American.
I liked that the teachers and tutors (counselors in fact) are all young, it was fun with them!
