Group excursions are very important to meet other people. And it is very good to use the language in practice.

They have very good and friendly teachers, I haven´t met anyone who said the school wasn´t good - I´ve learned so much and as the school was small and there were a lot of international students I had so much fun! If I had the choice... I would go back tomorrow...!
