The strengths of PELA are many. All the time the TEACHERS in PELA are trying to help us to improve our English. Every day we are learning something new!

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.

People in PORTLAND are very nice and open-minded. I enjoyed going out and easily meeting new people. The city is also very nice and it is easy to get around. I enjoyed trying to find new ethnic restaurants. I also enjoyed going to bowl and play pool. There are also many bars with nice music and food.

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!
