The part of the school I liked the most was my teacher Olga.
The organization was uncomplicated, clear and fast.

Simple, friendly atmosphere and good professors.
It's a great discount option for those seeking language study who are already familiar with the region. Not sure I would recommend it to a first time traveller, but worth the money compared to other schools.

The friendliness of the teachers
Too much nationalism, politics, brainwashing. I do a language course and not a political education course

It is a small school, which allows the teachers to respond to the strengths and weaknesses of the students. The content was very structured. The teacher, Olga, had a lot of patience and enthusiasm!
A sign at the entrance would be good. They are hard to find right away.

The teacher
It needs a real venue - I felt like we were grabbing rooms from someone else - and they were pretty unsavoury.

Good relationship between students and the teacher.
Groups should be a little bigger and each student's level taken into consideration.
