Classwork in the mornings was very serious. All aspects of the language were explored: literature, newspapers, grammar etc. In afternoon sessions, focus was on local history and life, as well as field trips. Teachers were well-qualified and made every effort to meet individual needs.
Social activities of all kinds were arranged.
