Not clear test per level. They do not provide books or exercise book. You just catch up with the other students when you arrive.

Other comments:
Lessons concentrate too much on grammar and reading/writing and no enough on speaking fluency and pronunciation. Teachers speak too fast using vocabulary and tenses that were never taught, and if students do not understand, they simply say it in English, rather that repeating it slower or writing it on the board. Very frustrating.

Additional information
Positive aspects of school:
Too many positive aspects! The teachers were talented, helpful, interesting and friendly! The classes were fun and relevant- never boring or long. I always felt engaged and was able to work on what I needed/wanted. Homework and in class exercises provided lots of practice! Lots of individual attention. I also loved the setting- so beautiful and homey. The location in El Centro is amazing too.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Best coffee-Cafe Tal and Conquistador; Alongdigas Museum; Las Minas/mines in Valenciana; the churches; sopa Azteca at ‘Frieda’s on Los Postitos, fresh fruits (especially prickly pear/‘tuna’), ice cream/sorbet on the street; GTO University; Don Quixote Museum; Estacion Gelato I also recommend contacting an ecotour company called Cacomixtle (cacomixtle.com). They are very affordable and offer urban walking & food tours, hiking trips, mountain biking etc. My guide Susana spoke English but was willing to help me practice Spanish. She was also super interesting and knowledgeable!

Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
If you only have a short time there, take classes in the morning and get involved in the extra activities in the afternoon for the full experience. Or even if you’re there for a long of time.

School name signboard is needed at entrance. When I was looking for the location at arrival on Sunday, I wasn’t able to find it. Some neighbours didn’t even know.

Additional information
Positive aspects of school:
The level of instruction was absolutely superb. I enjoyed and I mean enjoyed, three hours of grammar review and two hours of history, Mexican politics, Mexican psychology and much more. Most of the instructors that I knew were very cultured, well educated people on a level that you would find anywhere else in the world.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
As anywhere in Mexico, you literally need to watch your step. That means that you could easily trip over things, fall off ledges, and incur minor injuries. Europeans and North Americans would likely not find hand railings where one would expect but all you have to do is pay attention. Do not wander around on auto pilot and besides, you might miss interesting linguistic and cultural phenomena.
Other comments:
The instructors are very flexible and accommodating. If one finds one to be in the wrong level of instruction, it is easy enough to be moved to another level.
