Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Everything (during the lessons) is in Polish, even if you have no knowledge of the language. Participating in the school's social activity programme makes the stay even better (even if you think it's not "your type of people", you might be surprised).
Other comments: It is a really nice place and the teachers are nice, helpful and understanding.
