00:00:15 00:00:21 My name is Nazym, I'm 22 years old, I am from Kazakhstan.
00:00:22 00:00:25 Hi, I'm Eva I'm from Taiwan, I'm 22 years old
00:00:26 00:00:29 I like Boston very much, it's very beautiful,
00:00:29 00:00:34 and it's awesome to live here. It has a lot of old buildings.
00:00:34 00:00:39 When I choose the Kaplan school I wanted to be here,
00:00:39 00:00:41 exactly in the Harvard Square.
00:00:41 00:00:44 Harvard is one of the most prestigious University's in the world
00:00:45 00:00:48 and students, although they're not directly enrolled in Harvard
00:00:48 00:00:52 they get to experience academic life in a university setting that is Harvard.
00:00:54 00:00:57 I think Kaplan is a very nice place to learn English
00:00:57 00:01:03 because the teachers here are very nice and whenever you have questions
00:01:03 00:01:05 they are always very helpful.
00:01:06 00:01:08 The one thing that I think makes our teachers unique
00:01:08 00:01:14 is they do have pretty strong backgrounds, I think our teachers here are fun too,
00:01:14 00:01:18 to make sure the students are really having fun and learning at the same time.
00:01:19 00:01:22 Here in the school they have a special rule
00:01:22 00:01:25 that you can't speak in your own language here
00:01:25 00:01:32 that's why it's very good it gives you a lot of opportunity to improve it everyday.
00:01:32 00:01:35 We have a lounge in the back for students to hang out in
00:01:35 00:01:38 and have coffee and do their work, we have a computer lounge,
00:01:38 00:01:42 it's a quiet computer lounge, wifi throughout and also a language lab room
00:01:42 00:01:44 where students can hook up two special computers
00:01:44 00:01:46 that are just for language learning.
00:01:47 00:01:51 I think most students really enjoy the experience of the home stay.
00:01:51 00:01:54 Which are families that live in the area
00:01:55 00:01:59 and I think the home stay really is a lot more fun for students
00:02:00 00:02:03 as they're getting to hang out with these American families,
00:02:03 00:02:07 it allows them to be in this intensive English learning environment
00:02:07 00:02:10 and I think that's an exceptional choice for students
00:02:11 00:02:13 and that's why they choose home stay most of the time.
00:02:14 00:02:19 Kaplan in Harvard Square, I like it because everything is very convenient,
00:02:19 00:02:23 we have coffee shops, good restaurants and good music.
00:02:24 00:02:27 'This is Peets coffee we usually come here everyday
00:02:27 00:02:30 and its in front of Kaplan it's really really good.'
00:02:36 00:02:40 Baseball is one of the most popular sports here in the United States,
00:02:41 00:02:45 I have heard a lot about the Red Sox it's one of the famous teams.
00:02:48 00:02:54 After finishing my studying here I make a lot of friends from whole wide world,
00:02:55 00:02:58 it's amazing! I like Boston very much!
