I love all the things you can do in PORTLAND! When I was in Portland I did a lot of HIKES in many different and beautiful places! It was easy to take trips to the Olympic Peninsula, Multnomah Falls, and Crater Lake.

I wouldn’t have passed the test without this TOEFL class, that’s for sure! The way they teach the TOEFL was a very good exercise for the brain and is helping me with my classes at university. It was very helpful!

I really liked the TOEFL class. He taught us many methods which were easy to understand, and he created a good mood in the classroom. He is the best teacher that I ever took TOEFL classes with.

To VOLUNTEER in the French American International School and help people to learn Spanish was fun. I felt very comfortable because I could learn and practice English at the same time I could teach them about Spanish.
