Positive aspects of school:

Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
I think that everyone should start at the same chronological level. I started at the 10. Chapter of the textbook, while the others were already ahead by 4-5 weeks, starting from the beginning of the book.
Other comments:
Excellent school! I will be back, but I'll take a lot of private lessons in order to recover, classes of 10 students are in my opinion excessive for good learning. You waste lots of time!

You should stay in a host-family, because it's a wonderful opportunity to know more about culture and people and obviously to practise what you've learned at school. They can give you also some good tips what to see!

Positive aspects of school:
The atmosphere was great. Especially the front desk was most helpful in answering the questions that came up (mostly practical ones, daily life issues)
Other comments:
The combination of lessons in a group and individual lessons sure is more useful (I did 20 per week in a group and 10 more per week with a teacher). If I imagine the load of 30 hours with only me being the center of attention...well.. this would have been much harder. However, if one needs the quickest possible progress then the individual lessons sure are best (as the speed will be adjusted)
