Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
No need to book the meals - breakfast is poor, lunch is the opposite - everything is too much and fat. Also, it is not worth coming with a level below B1.2, it might be difficult to study (if the course is for 2-3 weeks) due to incorrect group placement.
Other comments:
In general the school is good.

Positive aspects of school:
I had two different teachers for a grammar part and a conversation part. However, as they should have had a meeting in advance, both of them gave us the informative classes. They were friendly and motivated the students very well. So, I could ask the questions without any hesitation. The school staff were helpful and made a ticket reservation of a concert for me.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss:
Classes are very good. The school office arranged a concert ticket of Vienna Boys' Choir. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask for some help. They are willing to support you.
Other comments:
The school is accessible. The teachers are nice. The school offers the various activities and you can make friends with the students of other classes.

Other comments:
Classroom time was hardly productive, reminding me of 1979 teaching methods. Next time will pay for private tutoring and skip much of classroom. Other students appeared equally lost/bored.

The ads boast 'free internet access' which in fact costs you about 90 minutes of queing time just to check emails! The staff spoke very good English but did not afford time to really talk due to the high student;staff ratio.
