Additional information
Other comments: I enjoyed the course very much and I would love to go back or to recommend it. However, I would like to address three points that seem important to me: 1) In my opinion, a language course for adults should be designed differently than a course for juniors or a language course in high school. I understand that beginners need to learn conjugation, grammar and vocabulary. But there is more to it; sometimes it felt like "drilling" in high school. 2) I expected to be in a group course (6-8 people). However, during the first week we were only three students and the next 2 weeks, I was the only student. I understand that there cannot be a group if there are no other students with the same level. But I was not informed about that.
