Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: 30h/week have lessons in the morning and in the afternoon, even if it doesn't leave you with a lot of free time to visit the city, it's worth it as groups in afternoon lessons are even smaller than in mornings.
Other comments: Due to students English level, the higher English level was upper-intermediate, if you are looking for some advanced level classes you may ask if any advanced class is open.
