Portland ist eine wundervolle Stadt und ich werde sicher wieder dahin gehen. In meiner Klasse hatte es zuerst vielen Asiaten und dann viele Saudis. Das machte den Nationalitätenmix etwas einseitig.

Testimonials

Marie Mayor

I choose Kaplan International Colleges because it is the school that was proposed to me and everyone said to me it is a good school. I enjoy the course because it is a mix of all English subjects. The staff is really kind, welcoming and helpful. In class, we did one subject every week that is good to learn. I liked the school because all the people are really kind and you can meet people from all around the world. You can learn about all different cultures. I recommend to visit all of the downtown in the City, walking in there to discover all the good bard and restaurants. The Kaplan experience was a really good experience. My English has improved and I am happy about that.

Host family
The dream opportunity to live like an inhabitant of Portland by sharing in the daily life of an American family. The accommodation in a host family is ideal for students who wish to immerse themselves in a different culture. Communicating on a daily basis with your host family will help you to develop your oral expression in a warm and friendly environment. The host families in Portland are carefully selected by our partner school, Kaplan Aspect, in order to offer you a safe and welcoming environment to stay in. You will stay in a single or double room with half board provided and you will need to allow for between 30 and 60 minutes in order to get to the school.

Using your English in a sporting or social context is an excellent opportunity to put into practice "on the field" the new language knowledge you will have acquired in class. With its numerous open green spaces, its pleasant parks along the banks of the Willamette and a dynamic cultural and sports scene. Portland is a choice destination for enjoying 100% of your free time. Our partner school, Kaplan Aspect, proposes to students each week to participate in activities and outings, some of which are free or at a reduced price, during the week or at weekends. In the afternoons, you can enjoy a visit to the beach or to Portland itself, basketball, football, walks, cycling, cultural outings, shopping trips (items are tax free in Oregon) or festive outings...you won't have time to get bored in Portland! Lovers of snow sports will be more than satisfied, being near the ski resorts of the famous Mount Hood which are known for having the longest period of snow cover in the north of the United States. Exciting excursions will also be proposed during the weekends to allow you to discover one of the most beautiful regions of the United States. Portland is waiting for you...Go for it!
