PELA is wonderful! The teachers are very nice and friendly in each class. The class sizes are small, so everyone can work and do their best to learn English. I really enjoyed Intensive English because I learned lot of new vocabulary, and with pronunciation a can use them!

I had wonderful time in PELA. Before I came to Portland, I felt speaking and learning English was very stressful. After studying at PELA, I love English now!
