Portland, Oregon, USA: Money Magazine proclaimed Portland North America's "Best Big City". One visit will explain why. Within short walking distance from our home is the Alberta Arts District featuring a slew of unique eateries, galleries, pubs and cafes. FYI: There's no sales tax in Oregon! Portland is surrounded by mountains, rivers and vineyards. Not to mention the Pacific Ocean to the west. So the Oregon Coast, Mt. Hood/Columbia River Gorge, and Wine Country are all highly recommended and favorite day-trips.

Type of Programme
One-to-one, personalised English tuition living full-board with the tutor's own family and in the tutor's own home, including local visits and excursions, meeting friends, neighbours and professional colleagues etc.
