The PELA TEACHERS were awesome! I felt like I gained a lot of knowledge from them in the tutoring center. They knew my problems well and helped me with everything.

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!

I really liked my Speaking & Listening classes because there is no better way to practice than this, and PELA teachers really know how to get students to talk!

I really liked sharing dinner with my HOST FAMILY. We would sometimes go out to dinner at ethnic restaurants. They took me many places like OMSI, the movies, and the Oregon State Fair!
