During the summer besides sightseeing i the city you can go to the beach which is also easily accessible with the metro. There are also multiple parks with stunning skyline views of Boston just 15-20 min walking distance from my house.

    Besides practice English with me there are plenty opportunities for you to practice the language in the city. Since most of the people whom I have hosted were interested in learning English, I have compiled a list of free and paid English Classes in the city that have been attended and recommended by previous workawayers.
