In our LISTENING and SPEAKING classes, the teacher gave us a lot of opportunities to practice English with many friends from many countries.

The PELA TEACHERS were awesome! I felt like I gained a lot of knowledge from them in the tutoring center. They knew my problems well and helped me with everything.

I come from Europe and it was great to learn about the American and also other cultures. All the TEACHERS were always ready to help and were very friendly.

Many interesting places are close to downtown PORTLAND, so I totally enjoyed this city. Also I liked Tri-Met maxes and buses; they were very convenient. The best thing I did was go to the summer music festival at the Oregon Zoo!
