Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Every Monday they don't start again the courses from the beginning, so when you join the class you resume the program where they had left them. The entire course has a duration of three months, but already I I reworked all topics in only five weeks. There are two residences, identical structured apartment with private kitchen every 4/5 bedrooms and private bathroom. One is behind the school the other one is a littel bit far away, but it allows you to cross the city center doing a pleasant walk.
Other comments: I highly recommend it to those who plan to spend from 4 weeks onwards.
