Positive aspects of school:
The teacher very helpful, cheerful and nice
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
I recommend reading the emails received from the school carefully, in fact in my case they had the wrong week. Luckily I noticed it and made them correct it.
Other comments:
the secretariat was rather imprecise, in fact, in addition to having the week of my course wrong, they also wrote me some wrong things about the accommodation: that the landlady would come to pick me up at the airport, and that the apartment was located in a certain street while it was in another (same area fortunately)

Other comments:
The Centre should assess the students before starting their lessons. For example I was put in an A1.2 class instead of A1.1 but I had no knowledge of the language and it was a frustrating one month. The other 4 students could already speak the language and I couldn't and the teacher was not helpful to me because she always thought I was not coping. How could I cope when I didn't learn the basics? I did not enjoy the first month until I was taken to the A1.1 class.

Response from school
Muchas gracias por tu comentario, Carlos! We are always happy to receive your feedback, so that we can improve our weak points for the future. When did you do the course? We used to have a canteen but now the school is running a snack service from Monday to Friday during the break. There is also a dispenser for coffee and for cold beverages. Moreover, there are numerous coffee and snack bars in the direct vicinity (very cheap!).We are also expanding and improving our leisure program.You are always welcome :)
