My HOST FAMILY was so nice and friendly. They were very active and did lots of things in nature. We also played darts, watched movies, and had great dinners together.

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!

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 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!

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.

My HOMESTAY PARENTS treated me as if I was their own daughter. We went camping near Mt. Hood–they even asked me if I wanted to take a friend on the trip with us. My host family is the kindest and the most hospitable couple!
