Comments:
1. 1. The instructors would like to cover as many contents as possible, therefore students are expected to be well prepared for the class materials in order to catch with the class.

2. Students are very active during class and they would like to interact with processors, which is less likely to experience at classrooms in Asia.

3. Activities include: Trip to Los Angeles, Universal Studio, Beaches visit, Surfing, etc
