Other comments
The school didn't expect that there were students with a B1-B2 level in German, so they were put together by age and for knowledge level..Then the best ones were moved in the adults class but the topics were not appropriate to their age because they were working topics.

As the school misunderstood my arrival flight, I contacted them several times by email. Just in case, I wrote to limousine service company to confirm my schedule and found out that the information hadn't been updated. I was worried that I could be picked up and sent me to the accommodation correctly.
