    Conversation class, the terrace on the roof. There was fresh food available (sandwiches and a different salad every day). The other schools only had vending machines. The teachers and the secretary were really friendly. The Welcome Beach Parties, etc. JUST TRY IT!

    Other comments: I would have liked to know a little more about my host family, rather than just names and addresses - perhaps you could get the hosts to write a very short message about themselves to put in the information to students.
    High quality of teachers.
