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.

I had two different teachers for a grammar part and a conversation part. However, as they should have had a meeting in advance, both of them gave us the informative classes. They were friendly and motivated the students very well. So, I could ask the questions without any hesitation. The school staff were helpful and made a ticket reservation of a concert for me.
The school is accessible. The teachers are nice. The school offers the various activities and you can make friends with the students of other classes.
