About The Group

The Tokyo FIT PDX group was the first group that was hosted by BeGlobal Foundation in Portland, OR. The students were able to enjoy ESL classes in the morning with our delightful ESL teacher, Annie Rosen, and also enjoy the city of Portland in the afternoon with activities such as: the Portland Walking Tour, Berry picking, and going to the International Rose Garden. Students also experienced a homestay program where they were able to immerse themselves into the everyday life and culture with local host families who reside around the Portland Metro Area.
