Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I found out that it is very beneficial to study a few hours every day besides school hours. Also activities provided by the school are nice to participate.

I paid for a one week course, five days, but I was informed on the 2nd day of my course that the course was four days. The reason given, was because there was a festivial on in the city. I would have prefered to have had this information prior to having paid for course & tuition fees. I had booked a senior class, adults over 50yrs, but my class consisted of students 18-19 yrs.

I enjoyed the afternoon cookery class I attended. More casual social events would have been good but overall the assistants were helpful and the teacher was excellent.
