I am not sure the "you get what you pay for" applies to language training. In my experience, it depends entirely on the individual teacher and I have had good and bad experiences with different teachers at the same school. To give specific examples, I took a Spanish class at ICI that was great and a German class that was terrible (it was all in Spanish, I learned more Spanish than German in that class, and ICI is owned by a German). But the Spanish class at ICI was way better than another Spanish class I took at Instituto Cultural that cost more than twice as much. I took classes from three or four different teachers at Olé in Querétaro and some were good and some not so good.
With all the classes I have taken, you would think I would be fluent, but it comes very slowly.
