    • A Message from School
    • Greetings from Lewis & Clark in beautiful Portland, Oregon!
      As the Director of the Academic English Studies (AES) program, I welcome you to our profile on! In the AES program, I have the opportunity to work with both exceptional faculty and students. I am proud that we have developed a detailed and relevant curriculum that will assist you in preparing for future academic work.

      We introduce our students to our library and computer labs, help them practice English using different research tools, and give them many different opportunities to practice their newly-acquired language skills; additionally, we strongly support our students’ efforts to integrate themselves into our community. I greatly enjoy working with our Conversation Group and our Friendship Family Coordinators. They bring our students together with families in the Portland area and members of the Lewis & Clark campus community.

      AES students have full access to all campus facilities and services, and also enjoy getting to know their American roommates. When you study in the AES program, you will have the opportunity to apply 24 AES course credits toward a Lewis & Clark undergraduate degree. If you have any questions or if you would like more information about our AES program, please contact us. 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!
