Insider tips about what future students should not miss: participate in the activities of the school.
Other comments: Tuition is only in Korean. It is hard to recognize the meaning of a word when no basic knowledge is available. It should be placed more emphasis on the explanation in a common language especially in the first classes.
The school is located near the Gangnam subway station in a neighbourhood with lots of restaurants, cafés ... So very well. The teachers are really nice and we learn Korean but also talk about their country, society ... we can discuss everything. We all shared our experiences and it was great. The courses are very intensive. The first level lasts for a week with a test to reach the next level which ends after 4 weeks. So be careful about the time spent at school and the targeted level.

The interaction between teacher and students. The activities arranged by the school allow students to learn Korean culture and also make friends with Korean students.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Don't be afraid to initiate talking with new people, there's a good chance you'll find someone with the same interests as you.
I loved the group size, which was reasonable. The teachers are really nice and they are also at your disposal to help solve some problems that you can meet at your arrival. But once in the classroom, not a word of English is spoken, everything is in Korean! If this can be confusing at first, it is actually a great way to learn and teachers still manage to make themselves understood one way or another. I did not stay very long bit this gave me the feeling of progressing rather quickly. This school is also a great way to meet other people travelling alone and doing things together that you wouldn't dare doing by yourself.

Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The school organises regular meetings with Korean students from the same school (they study English). The activity itself is not amazing but often ends up in a bar, restaurant or karaoke and this is where the real meeting takes place.
Other comments: I have not done a lot of activities but from those that I've made and returns that I've had from others, they are really not essential. Most are included in the price even when booking half-time courses (except entrance fees of a museum for example). Apart from this the school was really great and I'll come back there on my next visit.
