Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: You must be willing to climb up the levels of classes and that's why you should work hard. Also, you always have to ask you be transferred to another class when you think that the specific one you attend is too hard or too easy for you.
Other comments: The only thing that I didn't appreciate so much was the evaluation progress. Some students may have not be given the opportunity to attend classes of their level because of the lack of some teachers' good evaluation skills.
The educational monitoring, the registration process with the French interlocutor The room available for homework after school The computer room to learn online on your own

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: All explanations, starting with a1, will be given only in German, maybe a1 is still in English, I was from b1.2 to b2.2, everyone speaks only German,
Other comments: There were no Russian-speaking students in my course, for me it is a plus, the group is very multinational, if you want to get to know each other and communicate, you will have to develop spoken German
The possibility of learning and practicing the language in an international environment, with students from all over the world.
