All classes have many CONVERSATION OPPORTUNITIES. The students come from lots of different countries. I didn’t expect I could see and have a chance to talk with so many people of different nationalities!

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.

I really liked sharing dinner with my HOST FAMILY. We would sometimes go out to dinner at ethnic restaurants. They took me many places like OMSI, the movies, and the Oregon State Fair!
