Comments: “Many knowledgeable professors in Hebrew University gave us the lectures. The teaching mode and slides are so creative that we can memorize the content very easily. Besides, some guest speaker from famous company will also come to our classroom to have lecture for us. The second part of our courses is the company visiting. From the visiting, we can have a further understanding of the Israel mode of business. Many aspects we had come into touch with during the visiting such some experimental operation, the working environment, and product display etc.

Since there’re a lot of students joining the summer course, I had to stay in a temporary accommodation for 10 days before moving to the official accommodation. This was very inconvenient and the conditions of temporary accommodation was poor.” “The beddings and chairs were dirty and the price of the on-campus accommodation is quite high. However, the attitude of the staff is good and one of them knows how to speak Chinese.”
