Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Just enjoy. I definitely recommend ECELA and Santiago to learn Spanish.
Other comments: Sometimes the staff is not very efficient, in my case I had only one week of course so I tried to get some extra one-to-one classes, and for that I had to talk to the staff uncountable times till I got a positive answer.
