Young people in particular come from different countries, so it is clear that the staff members are trying to create a sense of closeness.
To be honest, it may have been good for adults to take the afternoon class, especially for me, as well as the conversation one. Because, although it is the purpose to stay in Barcelona, you will have late nights and you won't be back at home until morning.

Well organized.
Monday mornings week 2,3,4 were a waste as the teachers bided their time waiting for new students and then spent Monday afternoon working out their levels. We played battleships over and over. The other students were young. I would have liked a class my age. The teacher was the same week 2,3,4 and was the worst I have had. The teacher in week one was brilliant and I had some private lessons with him where I learned more in an hour than a day in the class.
