Piccolo pacoo empfiehlt SPANISH WORLD INSTITUTE nicht

I was a student at the Spanish World Institute (SWI), a language school in Bogota from November 2013 through January 2014.
Below is a summary my impressions of and experiences at SWI:
· The school is run by a dishonest, cheating, abrasive, and unethical person. The school has an extremely high teacher turnover rate. Also, the quality of the teachers hired in 2014 has deteriorated. During my first week 2 teachers resigned, one made it effective immediately. The following week another teacher announced her resignation. During my 6 weeks there I had a staff turnover of 150% . The owner Maria, treats her employees like absolute dirt and as a result the environment is unwelcoming, turbulent and completely full of tension.
· Even though the school presents the apartment building where I lived as its own property, it actually belongs to an unknown individual. The apartment is situated in a very unsafe location, is noisy and surrounded by slums, and lacks privacy in that the school personnel show up at odd hours without warning. Furthermore, the space is garnered by very very strict rules... For example, you are not allowed to store your dry food in the kitchen, you are permitted to store any body hygiene products in the shared bathroom (even if it is cleared by your other housemates or that you have none), you are not permitted to bring in any additional Manchester including blankets or pillows, this is silly considering the apartment is freezing without heating and they provide you with only three summer sheets. Furthermore, I am a 20 something female and was to be at the school in the apartment for 7 weeks, upon arrival I was sharing with a middle aged male and the other room (3 bedroom apartment) was locked and vacant. The middle aged gentlemen was studying at the school for a week and in the apartment for equal time. I was provided with the tiny room, with zero storage space and asked to share the bathroom with the male, the bathroom door does not close completely and cannot be locked. My second week at the apartment another middle aged gentleman arrived, he was given the main bedroom, with a private bathroom and a large closet space. He was studying with SWI for 1 week. This cycle continued for my entire time at SWI.
· SWI advertised on its website that it offers Spanish lessons to students at all levels, that its teachers speak English,and that it helps students with accommodations and assists them with anything they need. None of this is true. For example, students of different language levels are constantly shuffled from one class to the next. It is not clear to me what the school’s primary business focus is: selling accommodations or providing Spanish lessons.
Best example of this is: I have a medium to high level of Spanish. Having been studying for over 2.5 years in the language. I was placed in a morning classroom with someone who is close to my level, however in the afternoon when my first class ceased and my classmate left for the day, I was placed into the advanced class with two people who were studying for their DELE certificates. The entire class would consist of comprehension. Furthermore, for a week I shared a class with an absolute beginner, I felt for him because he was so far out of his depth. Not once did we go over greetings, questions, numbers, present tense etc. not one basic note was taught.
· One student’s flight was delayed, so he was not picked up by school’s pickup service even though he had paid for it in advance. He was not properly reimbursed for pickup or his hostel stay.
* The director has created a very unpleasant environment for the faculty, students, and staff. The school felt like a prison. At one time, I attended class to a crying teacher. During breaks we are forced to either stand outside on the street or buy coffee from one of the local coffee shops. Once the school gets its money from the students, it refuses to refund any money owed under any circumstances, even if no service is provided.
I HIGHLY ADVISED YOU AGAINST THIS SCHOOL!!!
