I especially enjoyed the afternoon activities, which allowed us to explore Berlin more closely and be immersed in Berlin with its museums, monuments and history.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
One thing to note, don't try to study outside of lessons. The lessons themselves are fine and it is just enough for you to learn German. Instead, spend time with your friends, read a book, or do something else aside from learning German all the time.
Other comments
The teachers can vary on how well they can teach. My first teacher was funny and great but didn't really explain anything. The second teacher was absolutely boring and the only interesting thing we did was watch a film. The last teacher was amazing and taught us quite a lot. The higher you go with your level, the more enjoyable and fun the course and teacher is.

The classrooms, very bright. The initial evaluation, very well done. On Wednesday, we had 90 extra minutes of self-study to make inquiries and clarify doubts.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
It is a school for young people; many were for many weeks, even months. Despite my age difference, I felt very comfortable (I did not find 50+ courses).
Other comments
The first day there were two sick teachers and they had to merge two groups :-( I had 3 teachers in 1 week :-( The system of the school is to have 2 teachers per week so that the students get used to different accents. I would prefer 1 teacher per week so that the teacher could get to know the students better, but in general, everything worked for me because I have a lot to learn and I do not have the pressure to learn the language to find a job or study or live there. Also, I took the course to live the experience "from the other side": I am a teacher of Spanish for foreigners, I like to see how other teachers and other schools work. I thought the coordination among teachers regarding the content of the lessons was very good.

you can speak openly with the teachers in german,and they encourage you to speak more. It is not a strict classroom setting, so you learn to become more comfortable with speaking German. also the excursion opportunities are very good and worthwhile.

take every opportunity to speak in German, because it's too easy to start speaking in your own language, when everyone speaks it too (spanish is very common)
