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.

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.

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.

My HOST FAMILY is very kind and so nice! They took me to some famous place every weekend. Moreover, if I have somewhere to go, they take me to that place. And when I had some trouble, they helped me kindly.
