Teachers and their methodology. They are great professionals, always attentive and trying to help students with everything they need. They make really clear and entertaining explanations. The classes are well distributed during the week. They combine classes, activities and funny games that deal with different aspects of the language (oral and written skills) which is really helpful to learn English without even realizing. It is a different methodology from what I have seen in Spain (where it is more difficult to learn English). Also, I like the fact that the teachers were explaining real uses of English for real life and they motivate students to speak.
The school is fantastic and the staff is incredibly friendly, always ready to help or give advice (which is especially important at the beginning when you don't know anybody). The teachers are really good and the classes are nice, enjoyable and actually funny (frequent activities and games to deepen our learning).
