My HOST FAMILY was so nice and friendly. They were very active and did lots of things in nature. We also played darts, watched movies, and had great dinners together.

In my classes I learned how to get into university. My teacher gave me advice about how to take the TOEFL. My classes really improved my speaking and listening

My favorite activity was hiking in Forest Park and exploring PORTLAND as much as possible! I really liked the live music in Portland, too. The concert of “Megafaun” at Mississippi Studios was particularly amazing.
