Very nice ladies; My 4 stars for 'quality of teaching' does not relate to the teachers, but to my own language progress. I do not know what might help me make better progress.

I especially liked the central location, the teacher and the intensive language training, since I was the only student.
Unfortunately, since I was the only student, there were no leisure facilities at all. But due to my great host family that was no problem.
