The problem of learning the local language was the aggregation of most international students in one course and the missing of locals in this course. I haven't expected this before. You cant learn english from other foreigners.

Personal recommendation
in a business course may be a bit more details about how to do business, how to open up new markets, how to win and keep cosumers, strategies and practical ways of earning money and having success instead of just general knowledge about trade and international politics.

Final comments
Come by car to this country! The roads are amazing and you have to have good dampers.But to travel around to find small roads leading to the nicest places, cliffs, beaches and towns and to feel the independence to start a road trip when ever you want, a car is important.

Personal comments
The houses are expensive and bad isoluated. The construction is the cheapest possible. The space is pretty good because every mate has his own bathroom and a big kitchen with livingroom is included. It is annoying that a security man is needed and watch you like bigbrother. The landlord has sometimes nothing else to do than to bully the students. Overall iam contented because the three mates had a nice year together in this flat and i hope that the landlord has no new ideas to rob us.
