Course recommendations
Teachers over there do not have a good command of English. Moreover they didn't seem to be interested in teaching and instructing exchange students. Topics were given, but the methods of teaching were disappointing.

Final comments
The culture alone is worth travelling to this beautiful country. Although there are some riots and the recent bombing on Bali you should think about a stay in the fascinating country. But do not expect too much regarding an academic progress.
