My HOST MOTHER is a good teacher, too! After school, we usually talk to each other. And she is an excellent cook. She always fixes different dinners for me. I feel really fortunate to have such a wonderful homestay experience.

I came to PORTLAND only 12 days ago, but already I’ve had many good experiences. Every day I have a full life.

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!

People in PORTLAND are very nice and open-minded. I enjoyed going out and easily meeting new people. The city is also very nice and it is easy to get around. I enjoyed trying to find new ethnic restaurants. I also enjoyed going to bowl and play pool. There are also many bars with nice music and food.
