I liked the INTEGRATED SKILLS class because it was fun and we always talked and talked and talked about different topics. It was very interesting.

My Business English teacher was very knowledgeable and friendly...I was really able to understand how Western-style businesses work and what they expect from their employees. It was great being able to practice making presentations and writing letters and reports!

I really liked sharing dinner with my HOST FAMILY. We would sometimes go out to dinner at ethnic restaurants. They took me many places like OMSI, the movies, and the Oregon State Fair!
