The location was great right in the middle of the city and I really liked having younger aged teachers.

Conny was super nice but not the best and most exciting teacher. Mona and Nina were great :)

As the school has only one coffee machine, there's always a long queue during a break. It should be better they have more machines.

the private course given by an excellent teacher, who unfortunately only gave us two days per week of group courses and not the last week. The main teacher, 3 days per week, was particularly boring and little pedagogue, as per opinion of all students.

CHECK THE QUALITY OF EACH TEACHER? I must say that the main teacher really spoiled the pleasure of learning, according to every student. This was written in the internal evaluation.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
a class hour is 45 minutes and not 60 minutes thus a four hour class is really 3 hours
Other comments
I rated low on the social activities because Tandem only offers excursions in the summer, on the up side, the students networked well and created there own excursions.

The school has a very laid back attitude, and it is definitely better to visit it in summer time as part of a fun language course
Other comments
Placement into classes was not as accurate as it should have been. Some of the teachers were not professional enough, although a handful were extremely good. There was a lack of learning goals, and monitoring on the student's progress either.
