My HOST MOTHER was always kind and cared about me. She took me many places and spoke with me a lot. I was very satisfied and lived comfortably with my host family.

My HOMESTAY PARENTS treated me as if I was their own daughter. We went camping near Mt. Hood–they even asked me if I wanted to take a friend on the trip with us. My host family is the kindest and the most hospitable couple!

I really liked my Speaking & Listening classes because there is no better way to practice than this, and PELA teachers really know how to get students to talk!
