In addition to studying, the school offers fun SCHOOL ACTIVITIES like the corn maze, NBA games, ski trips, and American holiday celebrations. Even the teachers participate! It is a great way to get to know each other.

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.

People in PORTLAND are very nice and open-minded. I enjoyed going out and easily meeting new people. The city is also very nice and it is easy to get around. I enjoyed trying to find new ethnic restaurants. I also enjoyed going to bowl and play pool. There are also many bars with nice music and food.

Because of the teachers, VOCABULARY & PRONUNCIATION classes were dynamic, so it is easy to pay attention and to participate. I think that these classes have helped me to improve my English.
