It is deficient on the part of the management; the reception of new students, the information regarding the group placements, their behaviour in general - it's the worst DID Deutsch I have been at (I had been in Munich and Hamburg and they seemed of high quality to me) - I would not come back to this school in Frankfurt.

Nice environment, friendly teachers and nice classrooms.
For me the classes I followed had nothing to do with the intensive learning I was promised, and the price of the courses were not equal to the learning level it was provided from Institut. If they don't have an appropriate class as promised then it would be better to say so, so we can decide to follow it or not.

It´s a cultural melting pot, with people from Brazil, Turkey and other parts of the world. I truly felt excited to be learning German around other people like me that come from all around the world.
Great school, absolutely recommended and I would advice other students to stay as long as you can.

One teacher named Markus. For the rest a waste of money. The school is not worth the 700 euro.
I did not like it. The director was also grumpy.

Published materials, location of the school, motivated teachers.
A lot of grammar during the class time, could offer more communicative lessons and exercises to do at home.

Interesting lessons, new grammar explained well and friendly staff and students.
I made my own arrangements for accommodation. New students are given assessment paper which had to be completed in the small busy reception area, and interviewed in the same noisy area as a group of new students were being conducted about the school. It could be organised better by using a classroom and more staff to interview. The school knows how many new students need to be assessed and interviewed. Otherwise I had a good experience over the two weeks but I found the first morning very stressful.
