I know it's an old building, so this is probably not possible, but there is a bathroom shortage...Everyone takes a break at the same time. Maybe the break time could be divided up into two?

Wonderful staff and teachers. A curriculum that is sufficiently challenging without being overwhelming. They are always willing to adjust to what is most important for each student.

It is a pity that there are no first-class media material. The speakers don't work most of the time (and acoustic exercise is also important ... not every host family has a working TV)

The class rooms - called "aulas" - are a bit small and the chairs are sat through.
