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.

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