My HOST MOTHER is really kind and willing to share a lot. I learned so much while living with her about Portland culture and the way people live in America. I love my host mother and her sweet daughter and son!

I totally like my TOEFL teacher’s style! He knows the best way of teaching TOEFL. Even if I don’t completely understand, he explains it to me again…it makes me feel relief.

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!

I love everything about my TOEIC class! For me, the class size (only 6-8 students) is perfect, and the balance of individual practice and group work is great. Also, the way that we make sentences using new vocabulary is really good.
