Teachers. Activities.
The lesson books are expensive for a tourist who can only follow the class for a week and can't use the whole book. If they had copy machine for student use in the reception, it would be convenient.

interesting course, it is simplistic to the fact that there was not even given a book as supplied. Welcoming family but very far from the school. Very disappointed to have paid for the single room and instead I found myself in a double.
