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 VOLUNTEERING activities at PELA were great English practice! Everyone at Buckman Elementary School was friendly and they liked to talk about anything. I realized that I really like taking care of children.

I really liked the TOEFL class. He taught us many methods which were easy to understand, and he created a good mood in the classroom. He is the best teacher that I ever took TOEFL classes with.
