Reviews about this course

This very international combined course was more than useful! Anyone who has ever taught knows how much energy young people incorporate… We learned by doing how to implement in class those things our students are interested in. In addition, you will get all the resources you need to express your own creative ideas as well. I highly recommend this course.
