The location is very good, many restaurants, cafes, shops in the area. The atmosphere at the school is very cozy and friendly. The lessons were instructive and interesting (at intermediate level). The teachers had a real enthusiasm for teaching. Small class size gave everyone an opportunity to interact and practice. Staff offered very useful travel assistance.
