Positive aspects of school
Due to a small class, we have many opportunities to speak during a lesson. Also it's easy to make friends. Private lessons are very concentrated and economical. The school organize the daily activities and one-day trip to the suburbs. Students from all over the world add to the diversity of the school.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
The style of German lesson is very speedy. You need to practice one after another and are asked to speak or answer during a lesson。Therefore, I recommend you to prepare well before a course starts or join a beginner class. Also I can suggest to take the private lessons which can help you to cover your weak points.

I can't comment on your accommodations---I found my own, and it was incredibly expensive. I didn't do any of the social activities, but they looked good.

My teacher, Nastja, was great. The environment is highly international. I recommend the Ausprache training / pronunciation. It's also free.
Other comments
The enrolment test is very bad, everyone I know changed their level (including me) because the one the school chose was too easy or too difficult. Be sure they give you a receipt for everything - I didn't get one for the house fund and I lost 100 euro because they refused to give it back to me. Make sure you change your course on Monday or Tuesday otherwise they will not change it until next Monday. Book your certificate on Monday otherwise on Saturday you will have to pay 5 euros to get it. Basically the school is cheap, but it tries to suck away as much money as it can. I am very upset about it - I will definitely not come back. The secretaries are just unbearable. Barbara and Nastja are great teachers. Betti (or something like that) is great for the grammar course but she is not good for the conversation one.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Heidelberg is expensive and very touristic. The weather is really unpredictable. I suggest buying a second-hand bicycle for periods of stay of two months or more (Altavelo Bergheimer Strasse No. 110). It costs such as a subscription, and if the weather is friendly, you'll have much more fun, having the chance to know the city and also travel by trains with the bike.
Other comments
The morning teachers were not very attentive or interested in the lesson. Too much relevance to the textbook.

In my opinion, the placement test should be taken only upon arrival, not via the Internet or before arriving in Germany, as levels vary (spoken interaction is especially important). This way, students would not waste time switching courses, changing books, etc.

The school didn't expect that there were students with a B1-B2 level in German, so they were put together by age and for knowledge level..Then the best ones were moved in the adults class but the topics were not appropriate to their age because they were working topics.

As the school misunderstood my arrival flight, I contacted them several times by email. Just in case, I wrote to limousine service company to confirm my schedule and found out that the information hadn't been updated. I was worried that I could be picked up and sent me to the accommodation correctly.
