Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Not a good school for beginners - my teacher could not speak any English and sometimes I needed certain grammer rules explained in English. This also made it very difficult to ask questions. I do not recommend this school for A1 Spanish speakers.

Additional information
Positive aspects of school:
The flexibility of the organisation: It was possible - and easy - to change the programme as well as the location. Also, the friendliness of the teachers.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
The local Saturday and Sunday market - "Feria de Artisanal" (from 6pm roughly). It's possible to buy all sorts of articrafts, clothes and jewellery. On top of that, the atmosphere is great.
Other comments:
As mentioned before, it´s a flexible organisation, but be aware that the changing of location might mean that you´ll be put into a class slightly behind or in front of where you finished in the previous location. As such, there might be a bit of overlapping, which I found quite frustrating. This goes, of course, for group classes only. If you´re very determined to learn the language, I personally recommend doing only individual classes or combining group classes with individual classes. About the school in Córdoba: It's got an extremely friendly atmosphere, where everybody knows everybody. This branch is ideal for the student who wishes to hang out with staff and colleagues after school and participate in various social activities. On the other hand, the Buenos Aires branch is far more anonymous as this school is huge so you´ll only get to know your own teacher and not the others. The social programme in Buenos Aires is also much smaller, almost non-existing, so if you like social activities I definitely recommend Córdoba.

i've studied in two different schools. 2 weeks in Cordoba ad 1 week in Ushuaia. the COINED in Ushuaia isn't at the same level like Cordoba. Cordoba is definitly the best.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Choose accommodation in a host family. It's better to learn the language and the standard is better, too.
Other comments:
It's better to go in August or September, because there are fewer people there and therefore smaller classes
