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!

In our LISTENING and SPEAKING classes, the teacher gave us a lot of opportunities to practice English with many friends from many countries.

My TEACHERS are easy going people. They are always trying to help you and trying to understand your ideas.

I liked the INTEGRATED SKILLS class because it was fun and we always talked and talked and talked about different topics. It was very interesting.
