The school was nice and in a good area. I think classes were very well organized and structured I feel the course fully prepared me to undertake teaching. The book as well as the multimedia teaching techniques were invaluable to my learning experience. I feel Carolina was amazing, talented, passionate and very… very patient teacher. She made the experience a very rewarding and informative one. She is a strong asset for the school. An overall rewarding and unforgettable experience.

The building is groovy and the staff is lovely. The course was incredibly helpful. It helped me understand how to apply concepts into engaging lessons and how to recognize different types of both learning and learners. Our trainer Carolina was prepared, organized fascinated, engaging and brilliant. She was patient and created a space for each of us to feel comfortable even when discussing difficult concepts or personal information. She made me think about approaching teaching from a variety of angles and constantly pointed out ways of engaging a class through real examples. The teaching practice sessions were helpful, working with a mixture of levels helped me understand how to better prepare myself and engage with teaching. Monique Nicholas, Canada.
