The classes seem long when you see the schedule but it goes by very quickly because the teachers use interactive - yet not childish – methods! There are few French students, which is a bad and a good point! A bad point, because some languages, like Korean, are well represented and I sometimes feel a little lonely. But it is a good point too because everyone is very welcoming and it forces me to speak English all the time. Washington is a huge city and even after spending 1 month and a half here, I discovered some new places! It is quite easy to find your way through the city; anyway, in Washington (like in New York, which I also visited), when people see you are lost, they come to help you!
