33 years old - Switzerland

Land und Stadt haben mir extrem gut gefallen. Es gibt so viel zu sehen und ich kann mir nicht vorstellen, dass sich hier jemand nicht wohlfühlen könnte. Betreffend Schule: Ich habe zwar "nur" Privatkurse genommen, aber ich habe von anderen Schülern mitbekommen, dass oft (kleinere) Klassen zusammengetan wurden und die betreffenden Schüler dann nicht ganz auf ihre Kosten kamen. Die Schule wollte offensichtlich sparen; ich bin klar der Meinung, dass man nicht verschiedene Stufen und Prüfungsvorbereitungskurse zusammenlegen darf.
