Our teacher, Mary Helene was incredible, as were our classmates. They were both very welcoming and energetic and I felt like we had a good bond. No one was left out.
We'd recommend it to anyone looking to learn and grow at any level. Everyone was incredibly nice and accommodating. We hope to do it again soon.

The school is well organized: reasonable entrance test, excellent teaching quality.
The bar could possibly be improved, in particular by extending the offer of food and drink.

The location is great and the teachers of the first two weeks were great, with the second week being exceptionally good. Unfortunately, the last two weeks I had a replacement teacher that was not competent to teach the level I was in.

The faculty was good but it was difficult to teach students of different levels in the same group. A pity!
The groups are too large. There are different levels in the same class, we were 20 students which delays learning. There were complaints but they commented that since August 15th was a holiday, there were only 4 days left and they had teachers on vacation. We did not think it was appropriate when summer courses were offered. Teachers should be present, not on vacation.
