Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Public transport is very efficient.
The distance between a teacher and students is very close and we speak very friendly. As it's a small group, we can make friends with every students in a class. There's a kitchen and I was very happy to prepare the Japanese food not only for myself but also other students.
