My HOST MOTHER is a good teacher, too! After school, we usually talk to each other. And she is an excellent cook. She always fixes different dinners for me. I feel really fortunate to have such a wonderful homestay experience.

My grammar has not been very good until now; I was always confused. But I like my SPEAKING & LISTENING class because it can give me more confidence and keep me learning English.

I really liked staying with my HOMESTAY FAMILY. I rarely felt homesick due to their kindness and the cozy atmosphere they created.

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!
