Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Wear comfortable shoes on all walks especially the original orientation walk which is quite long. Get to know the other students right away-they will help you so much.
Other comments: Have each student bring 1-2 Dry erase markers-they get a lot of use and dry up quickly. Distribute a decent map and include local restaurants and addresses on it. A list of close sites that are within walking distance would be great. A basic word/phrase list for all students would also be helpful. Overall a wonderful and unforgettable experience
The hostel was very nice, I really liked having breakfast & lunch together with all the students. Leandro & Lionel (and the other staff) are very friendly & helpful.
