It would be useful knowing that the school does not offer courses/classes on all levels at all times. I had to change to individual teaching my second week at the school

well, school is nice! I loved the lessons, teachers and especially the other students. Las palmas is very nice if you try to have a good time, there is something for everyone and in less than 15 minutes you can be in another part of the city and see lots of cool things. I enjoyed it a lot and will come back!
