There weren't enough people to constitute an Advanced group, so with others in the same case I was put in the Superior Intermediate Level which was not enough to really improve in relation to my level. One teacher told us that they hadn't organized an advanced level for at least one year. So I think people should be aware of that when choosing the school. I am quite skeptical about the way of teaching of at least one teacher who chooses to focus the WHOLE WEEK on a very specialized issue (the week I was there it was animals - all kinds of insects and so on) about which we learn only vocabulary. I didn't find it very useful.
