The strengths of PELA are many. All the time the teachers in PELA are trying to help us to improve our English. If they heard us saying something wrong they correct us. Every day we are learning something new. It is not easy to learn a new language, but if you want and you have people around you, helping you, you can do it!

My WRITING and GRAMMAR lessons were well prepared and concentrated on interesting topics.

My favorite activity was hiking in Forest Park and exploring PORTLAND as much as possible! I really liked the live music in Portland, too. The concert of “Megafaun” at Mississippi Studios was particularly amazing.

What I really liked about PORTLAND is that generally it is a very tidy, quiet and safe city. I liked that the cost of living is low, and there are many festivals and events to go see.
