The teachers! They became not just teachers for me but also good friends! Unfortunately I couldn't take part in all the activities because I have many friends in Seoul and I wanted to spend some time with them too :) I took part only in two activities: a cultural exchange with Korean students, we met up in a cafe on the ground floor where we drunk coffee and just talked about various things, of course in Korean :) You may want to speak English as almost all Koreans at the school could speak English. And some of the students spoke English with them, but if you speak English, there will be no progress in Korean. For example, I am very glad that I do not know English :) so I had no choice but to speak only Korean with them , they certainly do not know Russian :) the second activity, which I visited was watching the movie Raning man :) all the students from different levels and group got together and watched the movie on the big plasma :) The advantage: the movie was in Korean without subtitles :)

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: My advice: if you live 4 ~ 7 metro stops from school, on the first day of your course you should leave the house 1.5 ~ 2 hours in advance as Korean subway is very slow. as when'll go to the first day of the exam, take the exit for the .... Korean subway :) sooo slow especially in the morning. And do not believe the metro's timetable, in the morning it can be delays up to 5 ~ 30min ... I lived close to the station Hongik University Station and went to school at Cannes. The first day I was late 45 minutes for my level test.... and I was placed in a group with the lower level because I didn't have time to finish it. but then I didn't regret it because we studied a lot of grammar which I didn't know very well and the vocabulary which you can't normally find in the standard textbooks. You should also try to speak only Korean, the result will be much better. And it is better to take a course for no less than a month. I attended a course for 2 weeks, and I regretted than it wasn't a month.
The teaching; the flexible, conversation-based curriculum is very good.
