Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Istanbul location -- run down building and you need to be a heavy smoker to survive.
Other comments:
Unfortunately RTEC presents its school as something different on the website. The Istanbul school is located in easy reach when you use public transportation but it's in an old, run down building where everybody smokes in the hallways and rooms. Washrooms might be a shock. The Istanbul school is very small. 2 rooms and not very intriguing either. Some maintenance would help. Quality of class - it all depends on the teacher. My first week was good as I had a motivated, inspiring teacher (Banu). My second week was a pain in the neck although I was lucky to get private classes due to low student enrollment but the second teacher was not announced and it hit me surprise. As well her quality of teaching didn't bring me any further. I recommend a level test for all students so they will be in classified in the right level/class. For upcoming language studies I won't choose Royal Turkish Education Center anymore and also would not recommend it.
