The Good & the Bad - what did you like best? What least?
I had the chance to meet wonderful teachers (specially my private teacher Hendrik), I had fun and learnt a lot in just a month. Now I feel I can speak German better and I have achived a sense of security and fluency in my speaking.
I preferred my private lessons for a couple of reasons: first, as I said, my teacher was great (I had the chance to explore different subjects and improve in my speaking and listening, since the course was tailored on me and my desires); second, I am more a one to one lessons kind of person, I perform better and improve quicker (but this is just me).
What could GLS improve? The internet connection. I don't think it is the school's fault, but not being able to use internet when needed was sometimes a bit disappointing.
Your recommendations for other students
Recommendations? Listen carefully to your teachers and give your best. Nobody is there to judge you, but to help you improve. I assure that your commitment will pay off, you will be able to see your improvment within a short time. If you want, the school offers you great trips (Hamburg, for example) and lots of events and lectures. Spending time in GLS and Berlin it is always worth it and you will meet amazing people from all over the world. So the main rule is: work hard and have fun.
