Even though I felt like the lessons progressed slowly (only one grammar point per 3-hour class), going every day really helped my Korean listening, and I started picking up words and phrases outside of class.
The course was called “intensive” and while the classroom hours were long, I felt that the lessons progressed quite slowly and that the teachers were often talking/showing us YouTube videos just to kill time. But the quality of the teachers were great, and they explained everything very thoroughly.

The location is very convenient (very central in Gangnam and very close to metro and bus) and I liked the teacher I had (she knew a lot, had good teaching skills, was patient and made me feel comfortable, she encouraged me to speak. ..)
In general, everything was correct and as expected, although my first day was quite chaotic at first. I want to think that it was because sudden heavy rains on the way to school caused many new students to arrive together and with less anticipation than expected as transport was affected due to the rain. So it was all a bit confusing and chaotic at reception but it was solved in a few minutes.

Good central location.
Tuition is only in Korean. It is hard to recognize the meaning of a word when no basic knowledge is available. It should be placed more emphasis on the explanation in a common language especially in the first classes.

The school is located near the Gangnam subway station in a neighbourhood with lots of restaurants, cafés ... So very well. The teachers are really nice and we learn Korean but also talk about their country, society ... we can discuss everything. We all shared our experiences and it was great. The courses are very intensive. The first level lasts for a week with a test to reach the next level which ends after 4 weeks. So be careful about the time spent at school and the targeted level.
No complaints. The service and monitoring was fine.

I loved the group size, which was reasonable. The teachers are really nice and they are also at your disposal to help solve some problems that you can meet at your arrival. But once in the classroom, not a word of English is spoken, everything is in Korean! If this can be confusing at first, it is actually a great way to learn and teachers still manage to make themselves understood one way or another. I did not stay very long bit this gave me the feeling of progressing rather quickly. This school is also a great way to meet other people travelling alone and doing things together that you wouldn't dare doing by yourself.
I have not done a lot of activities but from those that I've made and returns that I've had from others, they are really not essential. Most are included in the price even when booking half-time courses (except entrance fees of a museum for example). Apart from this the school was really great and I'll come back there on my next visit.

The teachers! They became not just teachers for me but also good friends! Unfortunately I couldn't take part in all the activities because I have many friends in Seoul and I wanted to spend some time with them too :) I took part only in two activities: a cultural exchange with Korean students, we met up in a cafe on the ground floor where we drunk coffee and just talked about various things, of course in Korean :) You may want to speak English as almost all Koreans at the school could speak English. And some of the students spoke English with them, but if you speak English, there will be no progress in Korean. For example, I am very glad that I do not know English :) so I had no choice but to speak only Korean with them , they certainly do not know Russian :) the second activity, which I visited was watching the movie Raning man :) all the students from different levels and group got together and watched the movie on the big plasma :) The advantage: the movie was in Korean without subtitles :)

In the men's toilet, there was no soap in the 2 weeks and no (paper) towels. But was present in the school kitchen. Tables in the classrooms rather flat (for large people).
