Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Do not stay only on Oahu. Definitely travel to Maui and Kauai. It's worth to see it and every island offers a lot!
Other comments
The Ohia Student House is pretty bad. It is dirty and too expensive for what you get. But a plus point is the location of the hostel. The beach and the school are max. 5 minutes away.

Include enough time to visit the other islands, especially Kawai!
Other comments
In part, poor structure of the classes, in the higher levels (core600) over 70% of the students were German-speaking which was tedious.

The level of education was too low and I could not switch to another class because I was already in the highest level (600). I should add that I have difficulty learning languages.

If you like to party and be within 5 minutes of the academy, Hokele suites is the best hotel. A bit expensive but you really appreciate it, forget about the families.

Practically everything. The teachers were very prepared, excellent teaching methods and overall the internal organization unquestionably perfect for my taste. A little bit less than the organization for newcomers, because they were introduced in classes already formed (which is fine), but coming during the week of the final examination of the Term (so called) it's not appropriate because you find yourself having to take an examination for which you are not ready and then it happened to me that the following week was a little bit more relaxed.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
It's better to ask when the Term will start and end , and if you begin after that it has been started it's ok, but it's better you don't start during its last week ... it's really much better the following one.
Other comments
Apart from that I ave nothing to say, it was a wonderful experience, I thank those who allowed it and I will carry it forever in my heart. I met a lot of great people and if I had to return to Honolulu I will surely return even in that school.

The teachers are the best thing in the school. Another thing is that you can only speak in English in it, and with this rule, in general, people improve faster their English.
