Insider tips about what future students should not miss
When I took the placement test, I asked the staff person to put me in the easier of two levels if I fall between two levels. She didn't. The students in my class were quite a bit more advanced than I. So if that's important to you, insist on it. I know I could have switched the second day, but it's awkward to do so and the staffer should have accommodated my request in the first place.
Other comments
My class of 13 was way too big. It's hard to recommend the school if that's their norm. Also there was zero mention of after class activities in class itself. I only found out about them by looking at a bulletin board on my last day.

The classroom was a large closet with two open fireplaces to let in the air. I found this indecent. There were eight students and teacher inside a space much too small. I complained but without result.

Be aware of strict cancellation policies, just in case you are not entirely sure how long you are planning to stay, because you might not be refunded. Also, the majority of students are older people and pensioners, all very nice and kind, however if you are in your twenties or thirties and want to meet new friends this might not be the best option.

The intake: Just a short conversation decided that I should be on level B1. However, I had obtained level C1 through another school previously (total of 10 weeks).An examination on paper should be requested.
