Other comments: The course participants have to buy a thick, heavy book that has to be carried around all day if, like me, you live a long way out and don't go back during your lunch break. Storage options, e.g. lockable compartments, would be helpful. In addition, one could relieve teachers and students through better media equipment.
Great teacher Maite, patient, kind and very knowledgeable. Excellent pace of lessons, lots of material covered.
