Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The ferry rides are an easy and pleasant way to spend a Sunday.
The school is small and cozy. Staff and teachers are really nice and helpful. Activities are not very interesting. In my 2 weeks education there was no excursions to other cities.

Superb teachers (we had six!). Both interesting and interested in us. Great team spirit, challenging course (yes, OK, I took C1) in a lively though very relaxed atmosphere.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Don't miss ANY of the activities! Plus, conversation training, (which is optional) really worked for me, so I recommend it.
Other comments: As I understand it Dialoge is affiliated with TELC, not with the Goethe Institut. This may be an issue with test accreditation in some countries.
Very helpful. They tried to accommodate my study needs despite being on a day off. Great location overlooking the lake. Quiet place to study
