Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Try to be in your right English level and if you can, do english afternoon lessons. There you'll improve more your lenguage because there are less students.

It's a really good college. You'll learn a lot but not only grammar and things like that. That's why it's such a good place. Teachers are really friendly and help you with everything. Such a nice place? I'd come back again.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Don't speak in your mother language for God's sake, but get to know your class mates from other countries. Try to know the city, but notice not all the excursions the school organizes are so interesting, thus don't be afraid to make your own excursions.
