Positive aspects of school
I had two different teachers for a grammar part and a conversation part. However, as they should have had a meeting in advance, both of them gave us the informative classes. They were friendly and motivated the students very well. So, I could ask the questions without any hesitation. The school staff were helpful and made a ticket reservation of a concert for me.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Classes are very good. The school office arranged a concert ticket of Vienna Boys' Choir. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask for some help. They are willing to support you.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
If serious about practising conversation skills, ONLY stay with a host family. Otherwise, much of your practice will be with other students, which was not my intention.
Other comments
Classroom time was hardly productive, reminding me of 1979 teaching methods. Next time will pay for private tutoring and skip much of classroom. Other students appeared equally lost/bored.

The ads boast 'free internet access' which in fact costs you about 90 minutes of queing time just to check emails! The staff spoke very good English but did not afford time to really talk due to the high student;staff ratio.
