I wouldn’t have passed the test without this TOEFL class, that’s for sure! The way they teach the TOEFL was a very good exercise for the brain and is helping me with my classes at university. It was very helpful!

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.

Living with my HOST MOTHER was a wonderful experience. We went to the theater, played board games, and even did yoga classes together. Everything was great!

I enjoyed PRONUNCIATION classes because our teacher taught us real American pronunciation and many useful phrases. It's so good for my speaking ability and also listening ability.
