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.

I was in Alpha from March to April: in March it was very good, because we were only 8 students in the class, but in April we were 12. Consequently I think that the quality of the courses was no so good in April.
