Why Washington DC? Originally designed by the French architect Pierre L’Enfant in ...
1791, Washington is a city of green parks, wide tree-lined streets and very few skyscrapers, all of which give it a European air. The city, which attracts almost twenty million visitors each year, is divided into four quadrants – perhaps the most famous is Georgetown, a historic district with elegant 18th- and 19th-century townhouses, home to many influential residents, as well as chic restaurants and shops. The most famous sites are concentrated along the central Mall, including the White House, individual memorials to four of the greatest presidents, and the superb museums of the Smithsonian Institution.

The different nationalities of the students and the casual interaction with the teachers. The idea of learning online for the first hour of the day is good for repetion.
Since I joined in the middle of a study section, the whole system was never explained to me. This means that on the second day I had no idea where my class is. It was a bit of a shame that only a few students participated in the leisure activities, since they were already over 20 or have already done the field trips.(Probably this also has to do with the fact that I was on site in the fall and not in a summer course).
