"The classes are quite littl, maximum 12 people" -
"Yes, everything was really cool. I was only a month there, everything had gone in high gear. I was met heartily and seen off too. You should better take the intensive course, as I do not understand what to do if the classes will end at 12. It's exactly 4 o'clock after the intensive course, it's time to go for additional training to the Temple Bar Street :D" - (25 years)
