I think 30 euro is a lot of money for 50 minutes of language instruction.

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.
