All classes have many CONVERSATION OPPORTUNITIES. The students come from lots of different countries. I didn’t expect I could see and have a chance to talk with so many people of different nationalities!

Many interesting places are close to downtown PORTLAND, so I totally enjoyed this city. Also I liked Tri-Met maxes and buses; they were very convenient. The best thing I did was go to the summer music festival at the Oregon Zoo!
