Reviews about this course

I thoroughly enjoyed my study week at Europass Academy in Florence. Our teacher / instructor Lorenzo Gaspari has done an outstanding job to cater for the individual needs of the eight participants from four different countries who have come from various teaching environments. (…) Besides his outstanding interpersonal skills – he is highly professional in his teaching approach. He always came well prepared to class and followed a clear concept through to the end.

Πολύ αξιόπιστος πάροχος. Ακόμα και αν δεν γίνει κάποιο σεμινάριο, εύκολα θα σας βρούνε εναλλακτική. Το συγκεκριμένο σεμινάριο ήταν αντάξιο των στόχων. Επιπλέον προσφέρουν ξενάγηση της πόλης και μια εκδρομή εκτός Δουβλίνου, ώστε ο κάθε εκπαιδευόμενος να πάρει και μια ιδέα από την κουλτούρα και την ιστορία της χώρας.
