I like the organisation, school staff and teacher. Not all student rooms had air condition (this summer with +37 in the shadow it was quite critical).
I definitely recommend F+U to other students!

The most wonderful thing about the school is the professionalism of the teachers. I am specifically talking about my professor, Patricia Balazikova. Not only is she very professional but also a very kind and friendly type of person. Every day she never failed to not only teach us, but to also make the teaching fun and enjoyable. The professor also gives Literature once a week which had a really positive impact on my Education.
This is a school with friendly staff and professional teachers who are always nice and helpful.

I liked the location, near the old town, shopping centers and a large bus station. The city of Heidelberg itself is also very interesting. I liked the host family too.
Good school in a beautiful city. They respond to all requests very quickly, including by e-mail.

Apart from the classes, it is interesting the offer of cultural or leisure activities. Some might not seem so interesting at first, but it worth participating to get to know people and the city during the first days.
The courses don't really start on Monday as announced but new students are placed in long-term courses which have been going on for months. In my group, there were people who had been in that course up to a couple of months. Also, possibly due to the summer period, the teachers changed several times. One for standard lessons, one purely for grammar and another for conversation. This is actually an advantage, because each teacher has a methodology and an accent and different aspects of the language are perceived.
