Insider tips about what future students should not miss
If you choose a homestay, try to find one that has a small fridge--it made such a difference for me to be able to get fresh food from markets so I didn't have to eat out all the time.

It´s a pity that you don´t have guided city walks, nor a cafeteria as a meeting point.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Had best join the course at the beginning of the month, not in the middle of the month, because contents of lessons and classes are arranged every month.

Unfortunately my class was small, and there was not a lot of variety of nationalities. it was me and three Japanese girls, but I think generally that it is not usually like this.
