In my classes I learned how to get into university. My teacher gave me advice about how to take the TOEFL. My classes really improved my speaking and listening

The IELTS teacher is brilliant! He teaches in the way that makes the students believe in themselves and their skills.  He is very motivating!

My HOST FAMILY is very kind and so nice! They took me to some famous place every weekend. Moreover, if I have somewhere to go, they take me to that place. And when I had some trouble, they helped me kindly.

My VOLUNTEERING activities at PELA were great English practice! Everyone at Buckman Elementary School was friendly and they liked to talk about anything. I realized that I really like taking care of children.
