Our teacher was friendly, ready to hear our thoughts all the time, being an active listener as she thought us to be. I enjoyed meeting other participants from different countries and getting to know their problems at school as well as their benefits.

I had a great experience with Europass, applying creative methods and innovative solutions into the classroom. Working in an international team opens new horizons for our pedagogical skills, the exchange of good practices inspires us and gives us confidence for new achievements together with our students.

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. The location in Barcellona is beautiful and practising English very useful too. I suggest it. :)
