Additional information
Positive aspects of school:
Everyone who worked there was fun and friendly. The events were really good and we got to see a lot of Dominican Culture.
Other comments:
One area I think they could work on better is making sure students are in the right level. I saw some people from a low level in the advanced class, and some who spoke very well in a beginner class.
