    Other comments: The Centre should assess the students before starting their lessons. For example I was put in an A1.2 class instead of A1.1 but I had no knowledge of the language and it was a frustrating one month. The other 4 students could already speak the language and I couldn't and the teacher was not helpful to me because she always thought I was not coping. How could I cope when I didn't learn the basics? I did not enjoy the first month until I was taken to the A1.1 class.
