Other comments The 30hrs intensive course was difficult. Mornings were ok, afternoons very changeable: frequently changing teachers (I had five in three weeks), sometimes the courses were too big (up to 12 in one day), no "real program", very varying quality; many expected an accelerated 30hrs course which was not offered. Lack of sufficient information beforehand, possibly also by languagecourse.net.
