Reviews about this course

I liked it so much! And it’s been so useful! The course was addictive and let me think about more involving lessons(…). The teacher was full of energy and enthusiasm and the colleagues very nice and gentle. The location in Barcellona is beautiful and practising English very useful too. I suggest it. 🙂

Alessandra Chiappini

This course offered me a lot of possibilities. I’ve learned new applications that I’ll apply in classroom. I learned how to apply creative and innovative methods. Now I have experience with critical and creative thinking.

Zvonimira Špoljar
