The information and service from the consultant and school are very good! When I had a question, they soon gave me all the information I was looking for. It was possible to switch to another level group. The teachers are very nice and they take time when you have a question. I was there for only one week but if I should have had more time I certainly would have taken more lessons. It was a very nice week!!!!!rnthanx!
