We had a very good and incredibly committed teacher, who also guided excursions.
Friendly, but a little messy organization. Had to remind them to get my language test sent, but it came quickly when I asked for it. My room mate was not allowed to do anything, and ended up in the wrong group according to her. The accommodation was not a student apartment, but I lived with a woman. It worked great, but it would have been nice to know this before arrival. You have to take initiative to schedule your individual classes yourself. I got them all during the last week which was a bit much! Very substandard wifi. Only open during the lessons, so no possibility to use libraries for possible computer access or study. It was a bit of a shame. BUT ... The incredibly hospitable lady I lived with, my dear roommates, the incredibly skilled teacher we had .. made it all worth it !!!!
