Additional information
Positive aspects of school:
The teachers
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Students should be informed with the location of the homestay before arrival and actual location of the school. Also, the homestay environment and room is questionable.
Other comments:
The heart of David, the organizer, is not in his job. Poor management, terrible communication, and does not have the package skills of a organizer. To still have his job is beyond me.
