Accommodation
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: There are many bad experiences regarding accommodation, books are quite expensive and sometimes when you do the diagnostic evaluation you do not stay at the appropriate level, it is better to wait until the first test to see your real level.
The quality of the classes. The environment, lots of fun. ILAC cares for the students and they provide guidance. They schedule many integration activities. ILAC is an excellent school.
