Quality and professionalism of the teaching. Moved me up to a higher class in order to put me in a smaller class so I would have more opportunity to speak, even if it might have been one level too high.

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.
