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.

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!

Many interesting places are close to downtown PORTLAND, so I totally enjoyed this city. Also I liked Tri-Met maxes and buses; they were very convenient. The best thing I did was go to the summer music festival at the Oregon Zoo!

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!
