It is a small school, which allows the teachers to respond to the strengths and weaknesses of the students. The content was very structured. The teacher, Olga, had a lot of patience and enthusiasm!
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I can't judge the leisure activities, because I did not participate. There were a few offers, though.
Other comments
A sign at the entrance would be good. They are hard to find right away.

There needs to be more work on comprehension - less grammar
Other comments
It needs a real venue - I felt like we were grabbing rooms from someone else - and they were pretty unsavoury.

First of all you must know that Ukraine is not doing very well economically. It's in this context that I am making my comments. The school is located in an old building. On the ground floor there is no advertising of this school, which seems strange. The advertising is located at the door's entry (which is the minimum). Apart from the skills and kindness of the teacher, there is a cruel lack of means: - No paper available to students - The teacher had not even a ruler to draw a line. She used a carton packaging. - All the pens she had been given to her by students. The draft paper was also given by a student. - Teaching materials come down to nothing (on a table was a TV that I have never seen functioning). However, for each course I received handouts documents. - During the breaks I was drinking tea without sugar (there was not). No coffee either. The transfers went very well. Despite all above not very good, I marked higher than 10. Finally I would say that the city of Kiev alone is worth the trip! Best regards. Olivier Truchon.

Groups should be a little bigger and each student's level taken into consideration.
