Insider tips about what future students should not miss: You cannot rely on the kitchen
Other comments: the kitchenette in the apartments is really bad: absolutely small and inadequate facilities. There was just one pan, without the cover. The microwave would have been very useful, but notwithstanding the fact that I have complained for two weeks in a row with the reception I got nothing, not even one of the things (in my opinion) fundamental such as a lid, a sharp knife, a saucepan, a colander , a can opener or a bottle opener. I heard from other guests that it's like that in all the apartments.
The educational monitoring, the registration process with the French interlocutor The room available for homework after school The computer room to learn online on your own
