student commentsHow would you rate your German course at Sprachinstitut TREFFPUNKT?
At the German language institute TREFFPUNKT students are asked every week for a feedback to all aspects of their language stay: How they assess their German course, the teachers, the recreational program, the atmosphere at school and the overall support service. The aim of the school director is to ensure satisfaction and the success of the whole stay. Sometimes, students take the opportunity to add some personal comments, like, for example, Anne and Todd from Canada, who participated in a TREFFPUNKT course for two weeks in April 2011. You can download their original feedback document with their hand written comments here
