Insider tips about what future students should not miss: For new students who stay for a longer period, the school should organise a short meeting on the first day with students speaking the same language. Often, questions and problems can be articulated easier in the mother tongue. Especially for younger students and for longer stays.
Other comments: There should also be dictionaries in other languages, for example German-English etc.
My teacher, one of the best English teachers I have ever had.
