Other comments
I wish that we should have spoken more at the lectures. A good idea is to split the lesson in two parts. The first part with grammar and the second part with speaking. An easy way to solve that problem. I went there to learn how to speak, but I think there was too much writing. But I really liked our teacher Lydia. She was very kind and funny!!

The school does not offer courses in the afternoon and the lessons to catch up after a missed class are few. Don't miss the first lesson or it will be very hard to catch up.

The receptionists and teachers were really friendly and made the stay worthwhile, the rooms were too small for the number of people (I went in August, high season). The students are from all over the world but most of them are from Italy, Austria and Germany.
