Living with my HOST MOTHER was a wonderful experience. We went to the theater, played board games, and even did yoga classes together. Everything was great!

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.

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.
