Thank you for all the support your school brought during my stay and study time in Portland! It was of great help to continue my MBA program in Costa Rica. I think you have some of the best TEACHERS I have ever had in my life.

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 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 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.
