I had wonderful time in PELA. Before I came to Portland, I felt speaking and learning English was very stressful. After studying at PELA, I love English now!

I have met so many new people, and I have learned about my weaknesses and strengths in English; already I have improved my skills. I can participate in other activities out of school and learn about American culture. It's been a great experience!

PELA is wonderful! The teachers are very nice and friendly in each class. The class sizes are small, so everyone can work and do their best to learn English. I really enjoyed Intensive English because I learned lot of new vocabulary, and with pronunciation a can use them!
