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!

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

I love everything about my TOEIC class! For me, the class size (only 6-8 students) is perfect, and the balance of individual practice and group work is great. Also, the way that we make sentences using new vocabulary is really good.

I love all the things you can do in PORTLAND! When I was in Portland I did a lot of HIKES in many different and beautiful places! It was easy to take trips to the Olympic Peninsula, Multnomah Falls, and Crater Lake.
