Alpadia testimonial - Ismet

There are many language schools in Freiburg - my brother and myself had a look at all of them first and at the end we decided to enrol at Alpadia (my brother has studied in this school many years ago already). At Alpadia Freiburg there is a very nice atmosphere… it feels like being in a family! The apartment is perfect, situated in a quiet area and at the same time actually in the city center. I even bought a second-hand bike - it's great to come to school by bike! I like the city very much, it's a student town: there are a lot of young people and bars. I really like the language course. After three months now I can say, that I want to stay longer. Each week a lot of students leave and new students arrive. I have made wonderful friends. We are doing everything together! The bakery near the school is fantastic! That's a really great idea to start the day in a good way!!
