Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: I attended A1 level class. However, it was absolutely essential to review and prepare for the lessons, as the pace of the lessons was quite fast. Even if I was prepared well, sometimes I couldn't follow them. When you have some questions, you should ask a teacher without any hesitation. If the teacher recognizes you have some difficulties, he (and even your classmates as well) helps you to understand them. I was very happy with my class. You should have the solid motivation to learn, otherwise you will have a hard time there. Of course, if you devote to study at the school, you'll be rewarded. The school offers the free coffee/tea service. As the students have a break at the same time, a student room is always packed.
