The quality of the teaching methodology depends on the teacher that is assigned to you. Some teachers are very good, others are not good enough for the money you spend.

The atmosphere, the location and the teacher were absolutely brilliant! Christiano made me laugh during the class which was the best way to learn.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I had 2 teachers on the course, although both were good, I like my second one much better. She was very enthusastic and broke up the 3 hrs with a lot of things, but not too much to overload us. I found both teaching syles extremely different and at completely different standards, so it was very overwhelming for me to go from one class into another!

The school should give the pick-up man at the airport at least a map and some preliminary info for us. Also, on the first day of school,it should organize a meeting with all new students to brief them about what to do, what not to do, where to go, where not to go,how the public transportation system works, etc. This would help integrate the students to the school much faster.
