The Good & the Bad - what did you like best? What least?
I didn't really improve my German, I don't think I was in the right level and the teachers were changing every week. the first week I had a very boring teacher, her teaching method was really strange, in my opinion, she made us repeat sentences which I think can be helpful for beginners but no one in my class was beginner.. The other weeks the teachers were nice but it was too easy. The last week I moved to the advanced class and it was as easy as the other classes, I'm not good in German at all but i don't think that learning where the cities are in Germany and playing game could help me.
The staff was so friendly and fun and I think that the Sunday excursions were the best. The activities were cool but I think that it would have been better if there had been more variety in the evening activities or just more free time because I was a bit tired of all the games in the evening.
The last thing is that the activities were a bit unorganized, we were always late at the station and thus we always had to wait for the train, it was really hot this summer and there was no shades at this station. I think that the staff could have organized a bit more the activities so we wouldn't have to wait at the station for approximately 20 minutes nearly every day. The lunch packets weren't the best and so was the food but I don't blame you for this.

Try not to fail the German test, being in the wrong class is really boring.
