Comments about courses: Classes are divided into two blocks: Grammar & Conversation.
Lessons are designed according to the student’s skills and level; so a student who, for example, is good at speaking but not as good at writing will be placed in two different levels, with different teachers and classmates.
The atmosphere of the school is really nice. Teachers and staff are really friendly.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Just enjoy. I definitely recommend ECELA and Santiago to learn Spanish.
Other comments: Sometimes the staff is not very efficient, in my case I had only one week of course so I tried to get some extra one-to-one classes, and for that I had to talk to the staff uncountable times till I got a positive answer.
