Celebrating 30 years and 60,000 students, The Boston Language Institute empowers tongues to confidently articulate a new vocabulary with intensive classes in a dozen languages. Studious groups of 4–12 gather to learn the verbal melodies of one of the Institute’s instructors, most of whom possess native mastery, years of speaking abroad, or a computerized brain preloaded with the language that they’re teaching. Students can learn how to translate road signs along the autobahn with German lessons or pass on plots from Brazilian soap operas with Portuguese instruction. Classes are scheduled during the daytime and in the evening on weekdays and Saturdays to help students find a consistent time to drop in.
Prospective educators can become prime candidates to teach English in foreign countries during a four-hour introductory seminar. The broad-spectrum overview invites curious minds to test the waters of the TEFL Certificate program without committing to the full tuition or showing up with the wrong edition of the dictionary on the first day of class. Should students develop an interest in further pursuing certification, the cost of today’s Groupon can be applied toward the price of the full certification program.
