Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Heidelberg is expensive and very touristic. The weather is really unpredictable. I suggest buying a second-hand bicycle for periods of stay of two months or more (Altavelo Bergheimer Strasse No. 110). It costs such as a subscription, and if the weather is friendly, you'll have much more fun, having the chance to know the city and also travel by trains with the bike.
Other comments
The morning teachers were not very attentive or interested in the lesson. Too much relevance to the textbook.

In my opinion, the placement test should be taken only upon arrival, not via the Internet or before arriving in Germany, as levels vary (spoken interaction is especially important). This way, students would not waste time switching courses, changing books, etc.

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.
