I liked that you had to speak German that they would not allow English. It forced me to use the language and become more confident
Great overall. I would of liked to of taken the placement exam first prior to going to class to ensure correct level

I really liked the atmosphere in the school. Everyone was very friendly and helpful.
At first glance the school looked old and worn out, but as soon as I entered the school and meet the staff and the other students, I felt very much at home.

Good teaching staff. Thank you all.
I would like to have an internet connection with a higher speed and an access to the printer at the school. It would also be useful to reduce the group size up to 8 people. There were 12 students in my group and in my opinion it was a bit too much.
