From the English Language Program at Framingham State University

English Language Program students from Framingham State University took a field trip to Boston this week!

"We hopped a ride on a duck boat in Boston!" "We, students from the English Language Programs at Framingham State University along with our friends and staff members, took a break from our busy schedules and got a ride on a Boston subway train, then on a Boston Duck boat!" "During WWII, the U.S. military built amphibious trucks designed for transporting goods and troops over land and water, as well as for reaching and crossing beaches in amphibious attacks. After the war these trucks were used as tourist crafts in marine environments, became known as duck boats." "During the Boston Duck Tour, the captain of the vessel gave the passengers a very interesting historic overview of Boston, with a very funny and laid-back approach."
