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!

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.

In my classes I learned how to get into university. My teacher gave me advice about how to take the TOEFL. My classes really improved my speaking and listening

This was first time to study in a foreign country, so sometimes I felt confused, but this experience was really valuable for me in my life. Thanks a lot to all the STAFF and TEACHERS at PELA!
