Not very happy and not very professional

The Good & the Bad - what did you like best? What least?

I had a really good teacher.

The bad: On the first day after the interview I was told to be gack at the Campus for 12 o'clock even though, being an individual-lesson-student I was told that my lesson would start at 10. When I asked the teacher, with whom, I did the interview she said that it was a busy morning for the school and I needed to be back for 12 o'clock. When I returned at 12 o'clock I was told that GLS had been looking for me since 10 o' clock as my lesson started then. This shows a lack of communication or understanding by those doing the assessment interviews.

The worst thing was that for my final lesson I had a different teacher. This was very unprofessional. I am a teacher and understand the importance of continuity especially during a 5-day-individual course. When the teacher arrived she started speaking in a tense that I had not studied before and therefore I didn't understand anything. I then explained this fact and the lesson went better. In fact she was very good.



Your recommendations for other students

Do a course at the GoethebInstitute. It's better organised and they are more professional. You pay more but it's worth it.
