Other comments:
The first week was ok, though it would have been great to have more focus on speaking the language than doing text exercises. But the second week, there was no class for us, because we did not fit into either of the levels. Basic or high level. So I had to wait until Tuesday to have lessons. And the teacher was unprepared and showed no enthusiasm at all. Friday we ended up with another teacher. She was good, but it was a very confusing week, I feel my money was wasted :(

Additional information
Positive aspects of school:
There was always the possibility and flexibility to take individual classes due to a lack of students, although a course was booked.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
One should insist to know if a course will actually take place. Otherwise it can happen that you have to take individual classes. This has benefits in terms of the learning effect on the one hand, if on the other hand you don't want to come to school every day for an hour only, it costs more. Although this is clear from the start, it was not clear that there would be no course.
Other comments:
Advertised accessibility does not exist. While this did not affect me, because I have no physical handicap, a wheelchair user had to be carried up and down the stairs on a daily basis.

Other comments:
Classrooms in the basement, very dark, no placement test, therefore wrong group composition, time-wasting audiobooks with 10 min music droning, unpleasant automatically triggering room spray every 30 minutes. Teachers were unprepared and copy during the lessons. No homework, noticably little motivation

Other comments:
Classrooms in the basement are unacceptable (bad exposure to light, ventilation, cellar smell). Documents and media are outdated. Poor organization of teachers. They go unprepared to class, then have to copy in between ... Carmen once left us wait endlessly after the CD was finished.

Unfortunately, I assumed when someone is German and ants to learn Spanish a German-speaking teacher would be available. Unfortunately, there were only English-speaking teachers in the two weeks I have been there. Luckily, I know a little English! But I did not understand everything as good as if I would have had a German-speaking teacher. Too bad! :-( But otherwise nice and easy teachers!

Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
As a beginner with no experience with Spanish whatsoever, two straight weeks of the intensive course is more than enough, if not too much. You don't have time to practice what you just learned, which makes it hard to keep track with everything you are meant to learn. But still, this is a good kick-start as long as you keep it up by practising and try to speak as much Spanish as you can, whenever you get a chance!
Other comments:
Teachers: My first week, I had a great teacher who was patient and tried her best to make me understand everything. My second week was not as great. My new teacher was not as patient and he made me feel lost. It felt as if he had given me up. I am sure he is a good teacher, but i have to say, his sympathy and connection with other people are not. He should work on his social skills.
