All classes have many CONVERSATION OPPORTUNITIES. The students come from lots of different countries. I didn’t expect I could see and have a chance to talk with so many people of different nationalities!

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!

When I lived in PORTLAND, I could hunt, fish and do other natural activities. I loved the people, the restaurants, Thanksgiving, and NBA games–the last game was amazing! I wish I had more time to visit all the natural places near Portland.

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!
