The Good & the Bad - what did you like best? What least?
I love the fast pace of the classes and the way the teachers keep everyone on track and paying attention to the correct use of the language, not devolving into conversation for its own sake. They also don't let mistakes slide by. In other classes I've taken, there is no correction of mistakes, so they continue.
Your recommendations for other students
If you are older than 30, it makes sense to take the classes during the summer months when there are separate classes for older and younger people. I think everyone likes being with their peers and you're more likely to continue conversations after class with people your own age. Same goes for the apartments on campus. They're really nice and reasonable but you will be surrounded by young people and it's kind of awkward. Other than that, don't drink too much, get some sleep because you have to be alert to keep up!
