President’s Message

Welcome to Boston
Welcome to Boston.  Let me provide you with a brief introduction to our city.

Why Study a Foreign Language?
The main reason most students come to Boston is to improve your English, but why bother? Why study a foreign language? Although studying a foreign language is challenging, it also benefits your mind, your academic performance, your ability to appreciate other cultures, and your career.

Why Study Abroad?
In a perfect world, we would all spend time overseas. Almost anyone who has studied abroad will tell you that it is a life-changing experience, one of the most rewarding things that she has ever done. Why? What are the benefits of living in a foreign country?

Why Study at Showa Boston?
Showa Boston has an excellent staff of teachers who look forward to working with you. But in addition to studying, which students can do back in Japan, students in Boston have a precious opportunity to immerse themselves in an English-speaking environment.
