I enjoyed the location of the school.
Other comments
There were way to many students in class. For the 3 weeks I was there we were 12-16 people in the class. I felt like I only got to speak a few times in the entire day. The teachers were very different and inconsistent. Our first teacher made me feel like we were in grade school. She seemed annoyed at what she seemed to think was slow progress, pronouncing Asian names, dealing with students who weren't understanding certain grammar rules, etc... Luckily for us, we got a new teacher for the second half. She was much better, but still, there were too many students in class and we didn't get to speak very much. I would recommend choosing a smaller school with an enforced limit to the number of students in each class.

Other comments
I think that the facilities should be enhanced. The new location has only a few toilets for women and it was very inconvenient to access it during the break.

Too many Chinese students. Maybe they could have had their own classes? Every mother tongue has its difficulty... maybe it would be better for the students and for the teachers.

I didn't purchase a textbook, as I took a course for a short period. I could rental it though, it would be better if the school provides some hand-outs.

It is 6 minutes by public transport, but it takes a total of 25 minutes to get from the hostel to the school.
Other comments
There wasn't much material covered in class, there were students with a lower level in my group. The students of different genders stayed in the same rooms in the hostel which is simply unacceptable. Nobody cleans the rooms, the kitchen was dirty with an unpleasant smell, we were throwing food from the fridge.
