I would recommend it to all the guys of my age, beyond the language classes it's an opportunity to meet and interact with people from all over the world and different cultures. I consider it a useful and beautiful life experience.

Good location of the school.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
You should look for teachers who are adequate for you.
Other comments
A very good location of the school (you can go out to the center of the city in the afternoon). But the quality of the teachers depends much on each teacher, so if you want to put much effort on your English study, you should be careful. If you do not meet a good teacher, you might lose interest. If you do not feel satisfied with the teacher, you'd better ask for a change until you find one. ( My friend, for example, has changed 3 times the teacher and she says she has not met the adequate one yet.)
