Additional information
Positive aspects of school:
The teachers are very well qualified.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
For Brazilian students, I would say: spend a week in the intermediate class before joining the advanced group. Reviewing the content will help you a lot.
Other comments:
The name of the school is Frida Spanish School. Very poorly organized, with no accurate information and no staff speaking Portuguese. It seems like a garage background school, the organization does not exist, information is not secure, lack preparation to deal with Brazilian students, taking the language into consideration.

The teacher Diego and the support staff Silvana. During the difficult times of the earthquake, they did the best that they could do.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Normal class hours is 10:00-14:00. So if one needs extensive training, I recommend taking private lessons.
Other comments:
Thank you a lot. I enjoyed the class and I will take the advanced class in the near future.

Additional information
Positive aspects of school:
There were students from all over the world, which made lunch conversations very interesting. The teachers are also willing to spend time with the students outside of class, which makes for a good dive into local culture and is good for practicing the language.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Confirm with the school the time that your class begins. The third party booking agency creates an extra stop in the line of communication between you and the school, so it may not hurt to reach out to them directly.
Other comments:
The school is actually "Frida Spanish School," which is a partner school of COINED.

It's better to choose the group one level up and always, always, participate in all the organized activities. The area close to the school is the perfect place to stay.
