Positive aspects of school
The improvements depend on the teacher that is assigned to you. There are many types of teachers. Some of them were excellent. Some of them didn't care much about the students and some of them were just sick of it or were angry all the time. You can change to a different group but you usually lose 7 or 10 days to do so.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
You don't learn much in 4 weeks if your level is low or low/intermediate. you need to have a more advanced level because the elementary level (my case) starts with listening to a song or a teacher from Texas that does not translate a single word. Besides, I would to emphasize that this schools (don't know about the others) offers 4 hours per day which are actually 3 or less. They are always late, they ask you to do useless exercises while the teacher chats o "prepares other exercises", there is a 20-minute break (which is usually half hour) and the class finishes 20 minutes early every day. In my case, they offered me a private lesson before I joined the group course from 13:40 to 17:40. The problem is that it is the same teacher from 08:40 to 12:40 and 13:40 to 17:30. That means he has one hour to rest and have lunch. Then he is asked to teach a private lesson from 12:40 to 13:40. You can imagine the real time of the class and his focus during the class.
Other comments
The accommodation the school offers, such as the West Avenue Apartments are a permanent teen party. During my stay, I had no hot water and Internet connection for 2 weeks. The school does not have a library so there is nowhere you can go to focus and study. Therefore, this is a place to have fun, rather than studying English. In the streets, almost everybody speaks Spanish.
