The evaluation of the quality of the education would have been better, if there had not been a substitute teacher that took over part of the lessons. This teacher was not suitable to teach adults.

I loved the fact that teachers were always available and they not only loved to teach you the language and show you their culture but they were also interested in learning about yours.Classmates were really sociable and friendly.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Considering that I was very fine with the host family,according to me people should really know the real distance between school and host family. I was told that the house was a few minutes from the school but every day I had to do about 50 minutes travel between the bus and walking.
Other comments
Some local schools were dirty, such as restaurant and bar .. sometimes the reading room was dirty too. I pointed out at the school in the questionnaire that the school will supply at the end of the course.

Family: although it was a bit away from the center, I give full marks for the attention and sympathy for Janine, the owner. Return to the same place. The School: do negative value return books during holidays. Although my stay was short for work (two weeks) I have noticed a significant advance.
