In our LISTENING and SPEAKING classes, the teacher gave us a lot of opportunities to practice English with many friends from many countries.

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.

My VOLUNTEERING activities at PELA were great English practice! Everyone at Buckman Elementary School was friendly and they liked to talk about anything. I realized that I really like taking care of children.

I wouldn’t have passed the test without this TOEFL class, that’s for sure! The way they teach the TOEFL was a very good exercise for the brain and is helping me with my classes at university. It was very helpful!
