What our students said about Vienna

Rating: 1/5

1.0

I think is a city where there is always something to do. Many museums and galleries. And the people are nicer than Germans :). However, I feel the city doesn't have a personality, like it has an artificial aspect of beauty where every neighbourhood feels the same, even the people who live there seems to be the same, no matter the district you are.

The teaching quality
I think that the school should offer more cultural activities in the mornings and the afternoons. This way, people having class in the morning or in the afternoon still be able to take part in the activities.

Location, activities, schedules, not many students per class
It would be interesting in the near future to make intensive courses a little bit more creative, a method that was not only stuck to the textbook.
