Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The accommodation should be as close as possible to the city centre, due to the lack of public transport at night. The accommodation was far from perfect. the family was very nice but English people have a complete different view towards cleaning. Something to take into account.
The teachers. They were kind and they help you when you need it.
