Additional information
Other comments: 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.
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.
