Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: During the summer months, the street in front of the school hosts the buskers (street musicians)which, even though they're pleasant listening, they are also a great disturbance during the lesson.
Other comments: The management staff is very helpful in finding solutions for problems that may occur.
How friendly the staff was.
