Nice teacher with good variation of activities. Lots of chances to meet other people
The school isn’t great with performing language placement tests and the activities offered are all a bit basic.

Nice teachers. The one I had was good and patient. Had a plan, while also handling things we were wondering about. The principal was helpful when we wanted help with the activities we wanted to do in the afternoon. Also got invited to a gathering out on the town the last day of the course. It was a very pleasant evening.
Positive about everything, but the bathroom was unwelcoming and somewhat unhygienic. Needed renovation and a change of towels every day, preferably it should be paper towels.

small, informal, very nice atmosphere
Better a placement test on site than an essay with wrong conclusions. The amenities including food at the host families should not vary so much for the same price.

Croissants were served on the beginning of the week.
I think the service was good in general. However, as the school couldn't offer the private lessons with my requested day of a week and time, my afternoon schedule was restricted.
