Reviews about this course

This course was exactly what I was expecting. The class was quite small (only 10 people), which enabled us to participate actively in all the suggested activities. Our instructor, Mrs Sheila Corwin, was really fantastic! She was really professional and provided us with much specific material which we can use in our classes. All participants were able to share their teaching experiences in and learn from each others’. I highly recommend this course.
