What I liked most is the teachers' approaching with the students and these ones are all very open and friendly and it was really easy to make friends.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
the school is very good, but very crowded in the summer, so that it was necessary to divide the students into three different buildings, with several classes for the same level. I was surprised to see the strong presence of Italians in the school, and this is not so positive because when you're doing an experience like that, the primary aim above all is to know foreign people. However in the school there were people of all ages and all nations
Other comments
the school organizes daily activities of all kinds. Very important is the social evening, held on Friday evening and gives you the opportunity to meet other students in a pub for a drink and a chat.
