Feedback from June 2012
The tutors were excellent and provided great support. They were there for me whenever I needed them and observing them teach really inspired me!

We had all we needed: resources, photocopying and everything… I appreciated the availability of multiple reference and methodology books.

The course was even more challenging than I had imagined, but extremely informative. It was also fun! I had to work very hard, but it was worth it.
