We had massive health problems and were overwhelmed by the empathy of the teachers. The possibility of being able to consult a doctor at school, who not only organized the necessary clinic visits, but also accompanied us, was a huge help.

Quality of teaching / language progress: The individual lessons were very helpful in really practicing speaking. However, 6 hours a day are also exhausting: learning Spanish must really be the top priority of the stay.

The geographical location of the school, in the historic center. A small establishment on a human scale where there is very little in the class which is better to learn. Effective teachers!

Hmmm not much I did not like, but I saw some teachers struggling with the slow computer haha, maybe time to buy a new one. And it would have been nice to get some coffee next to tea during coffee breaks. Luckily there is a fine coffee shop 2 mins walking from the school
