The Concordia student residence is old and dirty but the biggest problem is the shared shower with no doors, there is only a transparent panel and everyone must pass in front to access the bathrooms.

Thank you for helping me to apply German class. I'm very happy with that. I extended staying here until end of September and will study more. I knew I should have applied that through your website because it would be cheaper. But I didn't have much time so I did it directly to the school. Anyway thanks again.

What I have liked more about my stay in Heidelberg is first the City and in particular the Altstadt or old City of the town, with its old and beautiful buildings, the old bridge, the castle. Heidelberg is a very multicultural town and I think also intercultural. That's very important because people of all nationalities live together, respecting each other.
