It was conveniently located. The staff are super helpful and nice. It was just right for me.
My beginning course was taught completely in German. This made me realize/and reminded me as a second language teacher, how important this is! If I were able to stay for longer next time, that would be best. The language would indeed click more with more time. However, I could tell that I learned some German. I graded down a little on the activities in that I believe there was just one a week? Maybe it is not possible for more. I do not know. The one I attended with Micaela was great.

Friendly and helpful staff. Very small group in the first week.
The lessons were a bit monotonous, a lot of questions and answer sessions. I would have preferred to be able to talk more freely, for example doing a debate.

What I liked the most is that I could practice my oral skills. We did practice a lot of conversation.
The real time of classes was about 25 hours in the whole course (2 weeks) and it wasn't 40 hours, as it was supposed to be. The price of the hotels that Inlingua offered was more expensive than the price that Inlingua indicates in its web (although I said I was an Inlingua student).
