My Business English teacher was very knowledgeable and friendly...I was really able to understand how Western-style businesses work and what they expect from their employees. It was great being able to practice making presentations and writing letters and reports!

This was first time to study in a foreign country, so sometimes I felt confused, but this experience was really valuable for me in my life. Thanks a lot to all the STAFF and TEACHERS at PELA!

I enjoyed PRONUNCIATION classes because our teacher taught us real American pronunciation and many useful phrases. It's so good for my speaking ability and also listening ability.

I really liked staying with my HOMESTAY FAMILY. I rarely felt homesick due to their kindness and the cozy atmosphere they created.
