The Good & the Bad - what did you like best? What least?
Good - extra-class activities are ok!
Some teachers are very good, but others are terrible (there is no uniformity).
The course doesn't have a clear structure for the learner. The school is great for those who have learned German make a good review, but to learn from the beginning, I would not recommend. Only now, when I enrolled in a Volkshochschule could see how much stuff I lost ecomo the course of GLS is completely unstructured.
For example, the level (A0 + A1 + A2), which lasts nearly a year in a regular school, the GLS is given in two months, with the same workload. It is simply impossible to have the same content. The repeated B2 twice and had nothing in common with each other. It completely depends on the teacher, since the school has no didactic structure.
I think you wouldn't receive absolute beginners as students.
