Everything was perfect with my HOST FAMILY. I had many opportunities to practice my English with them, and we did activities around Portland every week. My favorite meal they made for me was American barbeque!

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.

I totally like my TOEFL teacher’s style! He knows the best way of teaching TOEFL. Even if I don’t completely understand, he explains it to me again…it makes me feel relief.

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!
