가장아쉬웠던점은 학원기숙사가 따로없어서 가까운쪽에 집을구하던지 홈스테이를 해야했다는 점! 학원생들 중 혼자공부하러온 학생들은 거의다 같은생각~ 하지만 가격도 다른곳에비해 저렴하고 시설도 그닥 나쁜것같진 않아요ㅎㅎ비교대상이 없어서ㅠㅠ 선생님들 전체적으로 좋아요~ 오래 다니기보단 10주짜리 1~2텀 정도로 처음와서 적응하기좋은 학원같아요ㅎㅎ 가장좋은건 코리안이 거의없어서 한국말 쓸일이 없단거요ㅎㅎ

最令人失望的是我沒有私人宿舍,所以我不得不去附近的房子或寄宿家庭!
單獨來學的學生幾乎是一樣的,但是價格比其他地方便宜,設施也不差。
我沒有比較對象。
我喜歡整個班級老師,師生比1:10我認為這是一個很好的學校,並且第一次習慣。
最好的是台灣人不多,所以我盡量不會使用到中文。
