OŠ KOBARID

It was an excellent course with a lot of inspiring things to learn. Our trainer Mario did a very good job, was always friendly and had a lot of skill and patience. I profit from the stay for my work and it is also helpful that also after the course we can ask questions in case of need. Fully satisfied with the course. It was also good, to start with an introduction of the participants, the presentation of their work and the respective school systems. This may contribute to a better mutual understanding of the European nations. U.K.
