Much attention in the language of instruction, mainly English, would help improve the academic life to a greater extent. All the courses, if offered in English, would add to the strength of academic life.

Final comments
Its better to take monthly student bus pass for travel. Good to mix with the local people. Self-cooking is advisable for students with regard to expenses. A prior knowledge of the local language would help student mix with local community and win the friendship of the same.
