Afternoon activities
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
The location of the school and courses is not located in the city of Oxford but in Weathley. A small hamlet, about 6-7 kilometers before Oxford, coming from Heathrow airport.
Other comments:
The teachers are good and prepared but at an organizational level the relationship between the accommodation service and the families leaves something to be desired. My family had not been advised that I would be leaving on October 17th and not October 20th and the taxi to the airport had not been booked.

Other comments:
The course, honestly, was not like what I expected. I though, we were in a group starting and finishing at the same time. But, the school runs the whole year and we can just join at anytime we want. The state of the students is different. And we weren't informed what we were going to study and what we expected.

Additional information
Positive aspects of school:
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.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
I think it's important to speak without being very timid not only to improve English but also make friends there.
