Don't miss all the activities from the school. Cadiz (city at the Atlantic coast) is worth to see.

Not enough levels. During the second week, I was a bit bored because the group had not a very high level and I could not move to another course.

12 participants per group is too much! There was almost no possibility to speak. All levels from A2 to C1 were represented in one group. The placement test was a charade: barely finished, they took the test away and we were already in our final group, without any evaluation of the test.

Really impressed with the course. The only let-down was the classroom which was unpleasantly hot.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
If you go to the beginners class, it'd help if you know some basics already. The school is in the most beautiful area in the old city. You can ask the school to arrange the accommodation as close to the school as possible. It's easier of course if you do it some months before the class starts.
Other comments
It's well worth staying at least a month. 2 weeks was too short time...

I wanted to take an hour tutoring lesson aside from the regular class, but this was not an option. I felt that I was a little lost in learning during the 3rd week and felt a private lesson would've greatly helped.
