Thank you for all the support your school brought during my stay and study time in Portland! It was of great help to continue my MBA program in Costa Rica. I think you have some of the best TEACHERS I have ever had in my life.

My VOLUNTEERING activities at PELA were great English practice! Everyone at Buckman Elementary School was friendly and they liked to talk about anything. I realized that I really like taking care of children.

I totally like my TOEFL teacher’s style! He knows the best way of teaching TOEFL. Even if I don’t completely understand, he explains it to me again…it makes me feel relief.

My TEACHERS are easy going people. They are always trying to help you and trying to understand your ideas.
