Other comments: I have paid 4 weeks accommodation ... a week has 7 nights that would be 28 nights. However, only 27 nights were paid to my host family and I therefore had to move out a day earlier. My suggestion would be to indicate the accommodation reservation in days on the bill and not in weeks. This would dismiss any errors. I have paid the same amount for 7 nights as for 6 nights. So I want the 7th Day of my last week refunded.
I had a great teacher. All the staff was trying to help with any questions all the time. I felt very comfortable. Also nice that you get free tea and coffee all day. It is just getting a bit too noisy from the classes in the afternoon.
