One suggestion: a guided visit to the city I did not like: in a German course you expect a prepared guide and someone who speaks German, while the person who accompanied us did not speak German, and knew nothing at all about the city.

If you want to live in spartan conditions in a farm - it is your school. I would avoid the summer camps like this - there are much better programmes for the same money
Other comments
Terrible living conditions for children, the children slept on mattresses at first, and then they were moved to a room shared by many students, none of the children had a bedsit table for personal items or a wardrobe, they simply had to throw dirty and clean clothes on the floor. The lake was very far and it was very dirty

TWO OF THEIR TEACHERS. MONICA AND STEPHAN.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I think it is worth staying at the Guest House in Radolfzell. The homestay is much more expensive and most of them are in the outskirts and you have to depend on the bus/train timetable which is quite annoying.
Other comments
I loved the school: their method, the content, the length of the courses, their professionalism...however, it will depend on your teacher. I was lucky to have two of the best ones but I did have some of the others whose performance was much worse.

Other comments
I was in fact the only adult, which, however nice the young students were towards me, did not allow me talk much with them. I had come especially to improve my ability to speak but I've rather improved my grammar and vocabulary.

Consiglio di portare/noleggiare una bici: è il mezzo più comodo, data l'abbondanza di piste ciclabili e la dimensione ridotta della città.
Other comments
Nella Gastehaus della CDC mi sono trovata benissimo: l'alloggio è modesto, ma sufficiente; viene lasciata molta autonomia ed è un modo facile per fare "gruppo" con gli altri studenti.

Make sure you ask the staff for all avaliable information about transportation and student discounts around town

The instruction was outstanding but the general information about transporation and other important pieces on information for students to know were not presented in an organized packet when you arrive right away. Students had to know to ask or it was not forthcoming.
