Student reviews & feedback

I really loved the German course. I did new things and learned new things. The people in my class were nice and we also had lots of fun. I think I was in the correct level. The teachers were really excellent.

The course was very good, also because the students are not many and in some lessons i was alone. The activities for the afternoon and the evening were good also. The accommodation was clean and nice.

The challenge of lessons given solely in German has really improved my understanding of the spoken language. However there could have been more practice in conversation, beyond just answering the teacher's questions.

Accommodation
Was impressed by the quality of the apartment, but it could have been better maintained.
