Insider tips about what future students should not miss: do not speak your native language at all during the stay, rather stay with family
Other comments: A big problem regarding host family accomodation : I called the family the day before departure, and I discovered that she could not host me and that she had warned the school. Fortunately the person I contacted on the emergency number solved the pb. But it is a bad surprise the evening before departure. Especially as I was not as close to the school as before. Moreover the school's address was not good: I've discovered this upon arrival. The new family was very friendly and caring but the house was not clean
It's easy to find the classrooms, there's a nice cafeteria, it's clean and tidy, teachers are very nice.
