The strengths of PELA are many. All the time the TEACHERS in PELA are trying to help us to improve our English. Every day we are learning something new!

I really liked the TOEFL class. He taught us many methods which were easy to understand, and he created a good mood in the classroom. He is the best teacher that I ever took TOEFL classes with.

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!
