Classes have too many students, 10 to 15 and even more... The center is too small for the large number of students who they have.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I really enjoyed a Pronunciation Workshop! It's good that there are different levels for a grammar section and an oral section.
Other comments
As a level of the first conversation class was a bit higher than mine, I asked to change to a lower class. However, I was motivated to change to another class of the same level. As a result, I'm happy that I could keep up with and it became my favourite class.

I do not recommend going in winter, you do not enjoy the city and the temperature is awfully cold, below 15 degrees or worse. Much better in summer.

The teachers, the competence and the teaching method. They encourage dialogue and are always available.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
The school should be seen as a starting point, it is then up to the student to seek dialogue to improve their fluency. It would be better to speak with native people, because you have to consider that your classmates can make mistakes (we all are students!). Consider then that in the classroom can arrive people not really interested in learning and that they can slow down or hinder your best intentions to learn the language.
Other comments
Wonderful school and professional. In my opinion the entrance test is wrong. The grammar test has no time limits and the oral test is often not reliable (they should consider the excitement of the first day and that the assessment can't be exhausted on a handful of questions.) In any case, you can ask to change to a higher class or lower.

I found myself really well. I think that the course I did was very good, I was fine with the teachers and with their teaching method. The thing I liked most is the friendly atmosphere that I found as soon as I entered the school.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I think that participants should know that the school works with a company that organizes three days trips to New York, so if they could they will have the opportunity to book it for a longer period.

I think I have learned more in the Quest language than in any other school. It's really a good school.

If you sign up for canoeing with the school, they can cancel if you are missing 2 or 3 people to make up a group. This is unfortunate because there are some who absolutely wanted to do this activity.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
About the school I have absolutely no hits. The residence itself was not too bad in terms of facilities. Although it was very old, things were clean. And the location was also very good and is about 25 minutes walk from the school and is in the downtown area, giving the possibility to walk to all sites without having to get the card and metro was not cheap.
