Cassandra: "Overall the experience was great; the course material, activities, location of the school and general learning atmosphere. Of course, there were some differences in the teaching motivation / attitude of the teachers, which affected the language training somewhat. Mainly taking the course was a wonderful experience in a family-like environment! "

Leeann: "My course was good on the speaking level, not very well organized with people coming and going everyday, sometimes we had 10 people in the class and then sometimes it was 3-4 (which was better), but I don't think it was what I was expecting for the amount of money I spent. "
