    • A Message from School
    • Welcome to Academic English Studies in beautiful Portland, Oregon. AES just might be the most challenging English learning experience that you will ever love! We take our responsibility very seriously to prepare you for future studies and careers which require you to be proficient in English. We also, of course, believe that your experience outside of the class is just as important as what you learn in the class. That is why we encourage students to join campus activities, clubs, and seminars. We also provide opportunities to work with Lewis & Clark students in your classrooms, match you with tutors and conversation partners, and connect you with Portlanders through our Community Friends Program. Our student workers plan lunchtime conversation hours and other activities, so you get to know Lewis & Clark students and create long-lasting friendships.

      AES students have full access to all campus facilities and services, including the 24-hour library, the sports facilities, cafeterias, and on-campus living if you choose. Our free shuttle takes you downtown in 20 minutes, where you can connect to public transportation anywhere in the Portland metro area. Join us at AES, for what many of our students say is the best intensive English program they have been a part of. We look forward to meeting you here in Portland!

      Highly Recommend
      Portland itself is very beautiful and the people are friendly to foreigners. There was no stress at all when it came to life in Portland even though it took some time to adjust to a new place. The classes are small enough so that we have plenty of chances to participate in class. The teachers are eager to get students involved in class and they are very nice. In particular, the AES office is there for you when you need help with anything. The school bulidings are clean and modern. and the surroundings are beautiful. I had hoped that the school might offer some more outdoor activities, but the school did arrange a series of activities for international students, although the participation rate was quite low since there were some students who already lived in Portland or in the USA before. However, overall, I loved it and I would highly recommend other students to study English at Lewis & Clark College.

      It’s good to study here!
      I really like to study at Lewis & Clark College; it’s really a good school to learn English. In the beginning, I decided to study here for one semester, but at the end of the semester, I changed my mind to stay here for one more semester. The professors here help us a lot. They help us to solve every problem we have. They want us to learn more and learn something useful. Although the tuition is a little bit expensive, it is worth it. Besides, people here are really kind and friendly. They greet you even though they don’t know who you are. In addition, we have lots of outdoor activities. It’s good to study here.
      L&C is located in a mountain. It is 30 minutes from downtown. However, we have a shuttle bus to go downtown every day, and it’s free. Also, we have Max and street cars downtown. Anyway, it’s really convenient to study here!
