Activities were chaotically organized but rather due to the staff than due to the school. The school definitely made efforts.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Attend all courses The break at 1pm is a bit short
Other comments
For short stays, the time given to tests is too long, taking up course time. Discussions with other nationalities, although in English, do not bring much because they are not corrected, it is sometimes real gibberish, which is often incomprehensible
