Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The sunset on the beach is amazing
Other comments: The only downside, the school has mainly Swiss and this information was not well reflected on your site. Being Swiss myself I prefer to mix with other nationalities when I travel and I was unpleasantly surprised because it was part of my search criteria to make my choice of destination and schools on your site. Nevertheless the school was really good so I went over.
The professionalism and the small classes, allowing personal attention.
