Personal welcoming on the first day. The casual atmosphere while learning was a lot of fun. Super teacher (Matthew) who was engaged with joy and enthusiasm and explained using his whole body. His enthusiasm was inspiring. Just great.
Amazing team - congratulations. Everything worked out fine. Teaching, organization, friendliness.
