The school is very professional and well organized. However the welcome letter, and especially the rules for the students is very authoritarian and disrespectful. They should write this in a much more accepting and welcoming way

Studying in San Sebastian had to be one of the best experiences of my life. I have made friends that I will never forget and learned a language that has opened the doors to so many wonderful people that otherwise I would have never known. This city is so welcoming and unique and has a nightlife like no other. Basque country baby!

The director did an excellent job at making everybody feel comfortable and motivating students to take the study aspect seriously (Homework! I had not done that since I was at college!). It was very nice to have two different teachers on the same day with very different temperaments and methods.
Other comments
A two-week stay really is a minimum. I only had time for one week and that's a shame, and also bad in terms of "value for money" because of the fixed inscription fee.
