Very good teaching level.
It´s a pity that a student does not get any lessons the first day of arrival, just a test. It would be great to have the possibility to join a group even knowing one´s level only approximately, to avoid wasting time.

The teachers are ready for their classes
The course, honestly, was not like what I expected. I though, we were in a group starting and finishing at the same time. But, the school runs the whole year and we can just join at anytime we want. The state of the students is different. And we weren't informed what we were going to study and what we expected.

Nothing at all
The management's behavior is more than mediocre and despicable. It is clear that they care more about profitability, and money than the quality of education. They count the numbers of hours of classes to set the level of the students. It seems more of a company than a school. There are no adult classes, all ages are mixed, it filled the classroom to reach the maximum level of students rather than the exact level of each. One of the teachers has left us and let us know that it was because of the number of students that went downhill. Personally, I've left the course one week earlier because the teaching was so boring. Lot's of students in my class want to leave the school, but as they have already paid in advance, they are stuck !!!!! I feel like I have wasted my time for nothing !!!!!!! I regret enormously. We can not make progress with such education. Students realize that teachers are wrong often enough!
