Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The kitchen was missing a microwave. It could be better to bring a powerbar to keep in the room because there are very few power outlets and the plug-ins available are already in use for the fridge and a table lamp.
Everything was excellent: the school's facilities and the classes were also excellent. Everything was very well organized and very attentive staff, always trying to please your needs. The school organized many activities and tours that helped to integrate pleople. Just excelent! The school and hotel were in the same building, and only 10 minutes walk from the center of Munich. Very handy!

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: There is a Mensa (cafeteria) nearby and an Imbiss across the street that have cheap food. Also if you are staying at least a week, get the IsarCard for the public transportation - it is cheap and is valid for all transp. types.
Other comments: I have been to two other schools in Germany and CDC is the best I've seen so far. They have two buildings to themselves (it is a 5 minute walk from the tram), the classrooms are good-sized with not too many students in each level. Also one building is the 'Guest House'. I stayed with a host family which was also great, but from what I gathered from friends who stayed in the 'Guest House' it is quite good with gender separation and showers on each floor, plus you are right there for class each day. The social program happened about once a week and they do a good job of letting you know about upcoming excursions.
Ms.Johanna was very helpful and very good in teaching Germany.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: My advice is that if you really want to learn the German language you have to give all of yourself, talk, study and always ask if you don't understand something. And above all leave the groups of your own nationality because you then will talk just your language and no German !!
