Rating: 1.0/5.0

Maria: "This school isn't suitable for the TEACHER TRAINING COURSE. I spent two weeks here and my negative opinion is above all about the second week. First of all, one of the two teachers didn't do any needs analysis to know about the expectations and experience of the teachers. It took too much time to do the activities the teacher proposed and some activities were only a repetition of what we had done the week before (such as the activity of finding a proper question to the answer he gave). Furthermore, the instructions weren't clear. The teacher kept on talking without giving us a task. We shared our disappointment with him but nothing changed the following days. That teacher's classes are not proper for teachers. They deal with a general English course, although I booked a TEACHER TRAINING COURSE. On the first day we (as a class) informed the teacher that that kind of teaching is not what we need because the books we use with students are full of exercises about idioms for example. The course I booked was about methodology and language development but I didn't have any language development in terms of corrections, e.g. The interaction with the other teachers was missing (I mean discussion and sharing of different ideas how to teach differently was completely missing though it was what I expected.). I booked my teacher training course on my own and I didn't get any funding. I would have appreciated a refund. I asked for it but it was rejected. DO NOT CHOOSE THIS SCHOOL FOR TEACHER TRAINING."

Anna: "Non sono stata per niente soddisfatta dell'alloggio, ho pagato un prezzo caro per avere un servizio non all altezza sicuramente. Ho chiesto più e più volte di farmi cambiare il materasso perché era visibilmente datato e scomodo, senza ottenere risultati. Inoltre a 4 giorni prima del mio ritorno sono stata cambiata di camera senza essere stata avvisata con adeguato anticipo e senza che mi sia stato chiesto il permesso. Inoltre la cucina era scarsa di utensili e in condizioni igieniche VERGOGNOSE. "
Special diet supplement is EUR 30 per week.
