When a professional first arrives at NESE, he is given a placement test, and although he is placed into the academic level that provides him with the fastest learning possible, NESE realizes that this division is not enough. Therefore, all classes at NESE are also subdivided according to age. This means that a professional has classmates who are in positions similar to his: professionals who want to study in a serious environment that caters to their specific needs(1). Following their placement tests, professionals participate in a special orientation to NESE and to Boston. This orientation is offered to NESE’s professional students only.
Whether you work in business, science, law, or education, NESE recognizes that as a professional, you have very specific needs. As a result, NESE provides a choice of schedules to best suit a professional’s specific goals:
NESE has a special executive area within our building. This area includes a private lounge for all professionals currently studying at NESE to meet and discuss topics relevant to their fields of expertise. It also includes a private computer lab with unlimited free access to e-mail. Wireless access is also available for professionals who wish to use their laptops.
After class, NESE offers professionals many activities and trips to areas of interest. Our “Professionals Only” Club is one of the most popular activities. This club was designed to provide professionals with additional opportunities to meet classmates who share their interests, attend meetings, and visit companies in Boston. Through this club, professionals also often attend lectures at Harvard as well as social events in Boston.
Additionally, depending on your own goals and needs, you may attend some of the Elective and After-School Courses we offer.
Private Instruction is one-on-one instruction that provides an opportunity to focus on specific goals, gain intensive practice, and receive on-going correction and feedback. Because you are the only student, you have 100% of the teacher’s attention at all times, which allows you to maximize your learning in an environment created for your specific needs.
Exceptions may occur in an unusually small class.
At NESE, we understand that professionals want to be taught by professionals. Because of its outstanding reputation, NESE is able to attract teachers who hold undergraduate or advanced degrees from some of the top universities in the U.S., including Harvard, Yale,
and Columbia. Regardless of where our teachers obtained their degrees, NESE teachers are dynamic professionals with exceptional teaching experience, all of whom have been selected to teach at NESE because of their high level of expertise and dedication.
NESE has provided language training to professionals with a wide range of positions in business, government, science, and industry. Institutions and organizations represented by NESE professionals include:

NESE’s 10-level Semi-Intensive Program is ideal for professionals who would like to improve their English but are equally interested in other aspects of life in the United States. Because this program lasts only half a day, professionals have time to travel,work, or explore other interests. NESE professionals participating in the Semi-Intensive Program have full access to all NESE facilities, such as the choice of a dormitory or homestay accommodation, weekend trips, student clubs, and unlimited free access to e-mail and the Internet. Professionals participating in this program are also welcome to spend their out-of-class time using NESE’s academic facilities in order to study, listen to English-training CDs, or watch DVDs at NESE.
