Other comments: Try to get the student residence. It is nice and near the school.
Conversation class, the terrace on the roof. There was fresh food available (sandwiches and a different salad every day). The other schools only had vending machines. The teachers and the secretary were really friendly. The Welcome Beach Parties, etc. JUST TRY IT!

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Barcelona nightlife! Oveja Negra, Terazza, - a school-published brochure of good places would be a good idea.
Other comments: I would have liked to know a little more about my host family, rather than just names and addresses - perhaps you could get the hosts to write a very short message about themselves to put in the information to students.
High quality of teachers.

Other comments: I originally booked classes in a mini-group, but there were not enough students to make a mini-group so the classes were converted into private classes at a discount, which actually suited me very well.
