Start early and focus on the text book. It looks funky but is a valuable resource when coupled with other resource material.

I didn’t like being ignored along with other new students for the first half an hour when all the teachers arrived back from winter holiday. Sitting awkwardly without a greeting does not make me feel welcome.

the faculty members and the professors are very personable, caring. One particular professor spoke very clearly fully using her mouth, more like exaggerating, but it helped A LOT for me to understand the pronunciation/and understanding. The class I was assigned was small (2-3 students), enough for each of us to have opportunity to speak up.

The teachers are fantastic but also the reception staff is more than helpful and kind. I registered very late and arrived on Monday evening. I could only arrive the next day and had no confirmation, but the school was very flexible and Cristina arranged everything to start on time. Great new school building, everything perfect.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I will probably go again next year, but for at least 2 or 3 weeks to enjoy more.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
a school for the Spanish students of the German language. 90% of the classes in it are devoted to it. Also at the school engaged in foreign students studying Spanish. 99% say the Germans. Over the past year except for me there was only one non-German student. If you are from Germany - I would recommend this school. There are even signs and inscriptions all in Spanish and German. If you are like me, are not connected with Germany, I do not advise. Germans after playing a handful to each other and communicate in their native language. Director of the German school. And he judging by the reviews of teachers, it is very difficult boss. From that school big staff turnover and the quality of teaching is not the best. Teachers are not rare trash when it is direct in the classroom give write some text, and then in the end of the session to check it. And while the students themselves write about their business. Thus a half hour classroom is spent on what could be the homework. Beyond classroom activities were not provided. One time I asked for a children's group of German students on a tour, which was held by a teacher from the school, who himself was the first time in this place. That's all. More or anything not offered for 2 weeks. My resume - learn Spanish in a Spanish environment - it's very cool, and I will still repeat, but school choice I was very wrong
