Convenient location, near the park and the sea, downtown, friendly and helpful teachers, who explain the material very well.
I didn't like the teaching method: grammar was not correlated with conversation

The teaching staff the location the students
On the first day we were put into the wrong conversation class - it was above our level - but then we were put into a lower class the next day. It must be very difficult to teach in a class with students at different levels and different nationalities. I think the assessment should be given on the first day at school and the student, from the time of application to attending the school, should be given guidance maybe every two weeks until the start of their class. The test did not evaluate my level correctly.

Alessandra was great and my class was fun and interactive. Also liked the beach club we could use with a discount.
I didn't think the book we used was very clear - but the teaching was good. Nice to be able to meet at the beach club but the school doesn't organise much to bring the students together.

The atmosphere at the school was very friendly and the teacher was good and very helpful. The school has very large rooms, quiet and clean. There were not many students my age in this period but during the week (I stayed there just 1 week) I took part of an activity for free: we learned to make pizza!!
The town is very nice and relaxing but there are also many places to go dancing and meet people.
