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.

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!

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!

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!
