The IELTS teacher is brilliant! He teaches in the way that makes the students believe in themselves and their skills.  He is very motivating!

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!

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!
