The teachers were incredible! They were amazing at answering questions, teaching the material in an approachable way, and also keeping things fun. I also loved the interaction with the English students (conversation class, the weekly walking field trips).

The location and my teacher were OK.
As the school is principally an English school, the number of Spanish students is small and not really interested in school excursions (therefore there were none).

The professors are really amazing!
I didn't like the leadership and the fact that they seem to earn a LOT more than the professors! Seems fishy. Mark seemed bossy and didn't treat me and the people working for him well when there was a small problem.

Great Teachers. The student book allows you to do alternate between grammatical exercises, readings and vocabulary exercises so there is a lot of interaction between the students and the teachers.
Great staff. Great Guest House. However, the desks in the classrooms are really small and it is really difficult to write and take notes on such small desks.
