Hello, I am writing this review accompanied by my son who had the opportunity to experience two weeks here, firstly my son noted that the staff was very unpleasant especially the management (which is not necessarily the case for the maintenance employees ect), I could also note that when I called Boston to talk to them the staff was more than unpleasant they hung up on me, regarding the infrastructure although it is correct I find that for the exorbitant price we have to spend, it is a correct to have common showers as well as bunk beds not comfortable at all, a bad maintenance of the showers and toilets, the only good thing to note is that the school provides the towels, the activities are correct but the only interesting activities are paying, the EF incites to spend more and more and does not make any gesture for the participants in their program, no reduction on the city no reduction in relation to the public transport, the food is always paying at lunchtime. The laundry is also not free, it forces you to spend more and more. All this to say that the quality-price ratio is catastrophic, for example despite the fact that in the morning and in the evening the self-service is "free" the quantity of food and the quality of the service leaves more than to be desired, especially in the absence of water in the evening. All this to say that EF is a scam. Although the experience is interesting, the stay is way too expensive for the quality of service, but of course what shocked me the most was the lack of respect of the staff. I hope that EF will take this message into account because it is high time to clean up the staff who are completely intolerant of people who do not have an excellent level of English, and who are sometimes insulting. For example, when I was looking for information about the city, one of the managers of the establishment simply told me that it was my problem and that I had to find my own way around. An incredible lack of professionalism.

Charles CBN does not recommend EF Boston.

This experience is by far a true disaster ! I DO regret to have subscribed to a 6 months program with EF Boston ! First of all the staff is horrible, they lack of humanity and empathy, their only goals is to punish you and find any reason to fire you. In 6 months I saw at 30 people who were fired and the reasons are always completely far-fetched. The manager of the accommodation reigns on EF Boston as a dictator, terrorizing the campus ! You don’t have the right to cook on the campus and there is no meal provide for dinner which means that we are required to order food, which is very expensive. You don’t have the right to drink even where you’re older 21, you don’t have right to be more than 4 in a same room, so if you’re caught only discussing with some friends in a room, let’s say 5 you’re taking actually the risk to be fired. They give something they called “warnings” and after 2 warnings when you get the 3rd one you’re fired and actually if someone from staff doesn’t like you for whatever reason he has the right to give you two warnings. The staff is always suspicious and they always take videos of the students in order to send them to the administration as a proof which facilitates your expulsion. The campus itself is dirty, notably the bathroom, the internet is awful : the connection often shuts down and the cleaning is very superficial. Then some teachers are amazing but some others are very subjective, that means if they don’t like you they’re not gonna help you or they’re gonna be mean to you for no reason. Finally be careful if you speak Spanish 90% of the campus is from South America and most of the kitchen and cleaning staff members are from South America as well which means that you’ll always speak Spanish. Therefore it’ll be very complicated to improve and I saw many of my friends who spoke Spanish even to leave the campus because they could not improve.

Hence I don’t recommend EF Boston, it has been very negative experience.
