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.

Grammar is my nightmare--I'm always confused by some concepts and details, but in the ACADEMIC ENGLISH class I felt that I made progress every day! The teacher's fast-tempo speech, well-prepared handouts, and way of getting us to immediately use what we learned was really helpful!

Living with my HOST MOTHER was a wonderful experience. We went to the theater, played board games, and even did yoga classes together. Everything was great!

The Intensive English Program really fits my needs. The teachers are all passionate about teaching and I really had a great time in PELA. Grammar is normally a nightmare, but at PELA I felt that I made progress everyday!
