Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Encourage students to participate in extra-curricular activities by presenting class activities and explaining the usefulness of these ones.
Other comments: I think that teachers should be more attentive to older students who have a little more hearing problems; give them more written exercises and reading and especially talk to them slowly in front of them. It was my case. I would have benefited more from my program if the school had acted like this with me. Thank you for the next ones.
