The Good & the Bad - what did you like best? What least?
The problem with the school are uneven standards. You are very big institution, so it is to be expected, I guess. But, still... Some teachers are excellent, some shouldn't be teaching at all. For short stays, like mine, it is crucial to be placed correctly, otherwise you lose valuable time - like I have lost one week having being placed in a too advanced course. Likewise, some classrooms are excellent, some are very bad (in the old building). I guess some younger people will attribute this to a Berlin flair and wouldn't bother. Unfortunately, I wasn't among them. To my humble opinion, the school as a whole should work on standardization at all levels.
Your recommendations for other students
At shorter stays, make sure you are placed in an appropriate class/level from the very beginning.
