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.

I enjoyed PRONUNCIATION classes because our teacher taught us real American pronunciation and many useful phrases. It's so good for my speaking ability and also listening ability.

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