The teachers, the activities that seek to bring us closer to each other and the guide who was very attentive
The school is quite small in terms of room but it includes 3 buildings. In case of problem of language level or housing the administration remains at your disposal. The human encounters are just great (especially for young 18-20) I went there in summer so I do not know the atmosphere during other periods. Ps: When I arrived I was the only French so I have a lot (not had the choice) to work my English well.

The human quality of both staff and teachers and their willingness to help students with any problems.
In my opinion, they should improve some academic aspects. They could offer through a website, for example, exercises and activities that allow students to practice and progress according to their level. Much grammar is taught, which is fine, but it is not enough. It is important to improve listening comprehension and writing skills. A web page with guided exercises, with an access code, if the centre wants it, would help to improve these aspects.
