I really liked sharing dinner with my HOST FAMILY. We would sometimes go out to dinner at ethnic restaurants. They took me many places like OMSI, the movies, and the Oregon State Fair!

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!

Everything was perfect with my HOST FAMILY. I had many opportunities to practice my English with them, and we did activities around Portland every week. My favorite meal they made for me was American barbeque!

My HOST FAMILY is very kind and so nice! They took me to some famous place every weekend. Moreover, if I have somewhere to go, they take me to that place. And when I had some trouble, they helped me kindly.

My HOST MOTHER is a good teacher, too! After school, we usually talk to each other. And she is an excellent cook. She always fixes different dinners for me. I feel really fortunate to have such a wonderful homestay experience.
