Other comments
Classrooms are hot and some have no AC, makes it hard to concentrate. Also, they are noisy, you can hear other teachers and it is difficult to hear and focus.

It is a great school with perfect teachers and a friendly atmosphere. Another good thing, apart from interesting classes and quick progress you make there, is that the ocean is nearby and after the lessons you can go for a swim.

Make sure you're in the right group straight away because they will not let you move.
Other comments
The second week class was of a very mixed ability and taught by a trainee teacher who was out of her depth. Not impressed. Normally when teachers are training their students do not pay, or pay very little, so for the regular course to be taught by a trainee was very unprofessional and unfair both on us and on her. Lots of the good reviews for the school are done by unpaid interns working for them, so don't believe everything you read.

It could be much easier, if there was a idiom list with the text book which we have used. Then we'll learn also the new words and idioms during reading/writing in the school/at home.
Other comments
They need to send out a questionnaire about the school and accommodation. When we could write/tell them directly what we think about. They can organize everything better. The impression of the accommodation is also very important for the school.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Apart from Cádiz--which really is a beautiful place--I liked a self-organised excursion over the weekend to Morocco. Other students went to Sevilla which is also easily accessible by either bus or train services. Cádiz is easy to navigate around and has beautiful architecture. If you can I'm sure it's worth to rent a car and to explore the beaches along the coastline. If you can't you still have the beaches in Cádiz & others that are accessible by public transport. Tarifa is also a good place to go to (1:45 hrs by bus).
Other comments
Well organised, they make you feel comfortable and are always friendly and helpful. I stayed at a shared apartment. I was a bit unsure if I'd like that but the experience was great! My fellas were very nice and easy to get along with. We cooked together, helped each other with learning Spanish and went out together at night if we wanted to. The flat was beautiful, although it seems to depend a bit on how lucky you are (I've heard that some apartments tend to be a bit on the smaller side). However, I have seen two flats and both were very nice and close to the school. If you're not that lucky it doesn't really matter because you propably don't spend much time in your room anyway. Life in Cádiz (Spain in general, propably) starts at night and you adopt their life style real quickly (siesta in the afternoon, late dinner, get up late etc.). Upfront I was a bit worried because I'm relatively mature (36 years). But my worries were unnecessary. Sure, most were younger. But in a way it didn't matter. It was nice to talk to different people of different ages (the majority in the 20s). But I felt that the atmosphere at K2 makes people of all ages feel comfortable. I would definately recommend the school and the place to everyone!
