Why Tbilisi? A big part of Tbilisi's eternal charm is derived from its dramatic setting in the deep valley of the swift Mtkvari River. Tbilisi has come a long way since its revolution outed the post-Soviet Shevardnadze government. Its cobble-stoned old town reflects a long, complicated history, with periods under Russian and Persian rule. Its interesting mix of architecture encompasses Eastern Orthodox churches, Soviet Modernist structures and eye-catching contemporary structures. Today it sports an ever-lively arts and cultural scene, inviting cafes, funky bars and clubs, spruced-up museums, galleries and parks. All of which make it an interesting and fun city to both visit and live in compared to what it was less than a decade ago.

Rating: 3.2

Authentic, unpretentious and the teacher was kind and patient.
No social events are organised in Winter, but that is understandable as there are fewer students.

Nothing was right, it seems to me this is a scam. Too expensive for really bad teaching in something named school that doesn't even have a sign on the 3 rooms it owns in a building.
The teacher was nearly only speaking to me in English. I was just reading the book and the only interaction was asking for vocabulary. Even reading dialogues, I would have to read all the characters myself. How can you learn the pronunciation or the rhythm if no one is speaking to you in the language you're learning? You're paying for the lessons, but the teacher tries to finish early each day.

Private lessons, free choice of materials, the personal contact with the teacher, the respondance to requests.
Language Centre, no tourism center.
