It was very good to attend to lessons which were taught in English to learn vocabulary on business. Besides, we had to work in teams, where the main language was English. It was a very good opportunity to improve my fluency.

Personal comments
It is a good idea to buy a discount card for train trips. It costs about 50Ç, and it gives you a 50% discount in every train ticket taht you buy. TRAIN TICKETS ARE REALLY EXPENSIVE!!! If you love arts, you can get a Museum card which allows you to enter most museums for free.

Personal recommendation
Try to mix with people from other countries, not just your own language speaker. You have the chance to meet Indonesians, whose culture and lifestyle is completely different. Take advantage of it!

Personal comments
Housing: The "Church" is a halls built inside a church. There are single (expensive) and double rooms. All af them have a considerable size, kitchen and bathroom included. A fantastic place to live in!!! University: The school is quite disorganized. Lots of courses were cancelled and we did not have too much help from the school.
