Other comments: There were not many social activities (only twice).
It is all super organized and the atmosphere is extremely friendly. They also try to get the students in contact with each other. It was also great that in the first week only 2 students were in the class, and in the second week 3 students. The two teachers we had were very dedicated and really professional.
