Absolutely great! Highly recommended.
The schools is very well organised and with a nice homey feel to it. The location is amazing in the city centre. And they do offer a lot of activities if you would like to join in but not in a pushy way.

I was there 4 weeks in August and there was only 2-5 students in every class. I have been to 3 other schools and it was normal there to have 10-13 students in every class. Few students in the classes and at the school in general, made us into a little family with good friendships.
Friendly teachers, good atmosphere. I had a room in a family. It was amazing.

The team is very friendly.
Students have very differents levels in the same group, so it was difficult to satisfy everybody.

Nice teachers. Nice modern facilities. WiFi
The school is very small and, at times, may be incapable of catering for all ability levels if, for example, there are several absolute beginners and one more advanced
