Framingham State University

Lucas R. Souza, Ipatinga, Brazil

 "I came to FSU so that I can study English with native speakers. The courses have been very enjoyable. The teachers are well-prepared and ready to answer the students’ questions. I recommend this program because I have improved in both my written and spoken English and I have had a great experience.”

Framingham State University

London Baofang Zhang, Qingdao, Shangdong, China

“Studying English at FSU exceeded my expectations. The teachers were so professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. I realized how much I had learned at FSU when I got accepted into graduate school. Other people thought I had been in the United States much longer than I actually had because of my work on pronunciation skills at FSU. Many people tell me my accent is easy to understand.  Also, FSU prepared me to make presentations for my graduate classes and my writing was better than expected for international students. I definitely recommend FSU to other students and friends because the courses are worth it and you will make long-lasting friendships!”

Pietro Rossini, Salerno, Italy

“The English Programs at FSU was a great experience. I remember when I arrived, I didn't understand people. My goal was to be admitted to a prestigious university for a master’s degree in journalism. After more than one year studying,  I succeeded. I then enrolled in the Bridge to University and Professional Success Program which allows students to take some credited undergraduate courses.”
