Why students love PELA!

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!

People in PORTLAND are very nice and open-minded. I enjoyed going out and easily meeting new people. The city is also very nice and it is easy to get around. I enjoyed trying to find new ethnic restaurants. I also enjoyed going to bowl and play pool. There are also many bars with nice music and food.

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.
