Friendly attitude of the teaching staff. Opportunity to interact with people from so many different countries
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Wear comfortable shoes on all walks especially the original orientation walk which is quite long. Get to know the other students right away-they will help you so much.
Other comments
Have each student bring 1-2 Dry erase markers-they get a lot of use and dry up quickly. Distribute a decent map and include local restaurants and addresses on it. A list of close sites that are within walking distance would be great. A basic word/phrase list for all students would also be helpful. Overall a wonderful and unforgettable experience

The hostel was very nice, I really liked having breakfast & lunch together with all the students. Leandro & Lionel (and the other staff) are very friendly & helpful.
Other comments
The partner school in Trinidad was very nice and, concerning the quality of teaching & classroom, better organized than in Havana.

Location, food provided - especially the yummy breakfast, the guys took us out to a dance club and also to the Labour Day parade. Friendly staff.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Make the most of the cultural tours and extra excursions, it's not very easy to get to the beach etc by yourself, so let the school do the organising for you. They'll also organise your wider travel for you but it will not be the cheapest way to do it as bargains on accommodation are to be found when you arrive at your destination.
Other comments
A good way to experience Havana with a ready made group of friends. There are cheaper hostels but you get what you pay for. If you're not sure about dance classes or want a mix of dance and cultural tours in the afternoons just book your language classes & accommodation as you can add on dance & tours later.

Extremely friendly teachers and staff; well-organized (everyone is very prompt).
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
You can stay in the school dorm or ask to be placed in a private room in the neighborhood. The food (breakfast and lunch provided) was quite good.
Other comments
Website needs updating as information about schedule and required clothing for salsa dancing was not accurate.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
the meals are very simple and ordinary, there are basic products, but the chef is really bad, sorry!
Other comments
Regarding teaching: they are very poorly organized, sometimes the teacher came to class without any study plan or copies. I worked hard in my room with the french programm of Rosetta Ston . PS: J'ai appris le français en 26 mois dans une école de langue à Montréal - 12h par semaine!
