40 hours over 2 weeks!

Attending the course was a lot of fun and broadened my vocabulary massively.  For my exam preparation, I especially benefitted from the extra lessons I had. I now know where I stand and what I have to focus on.

Beyond Expectations!

If I had known how much I was going to improve; I would have asked more of my friends to join the course. But now I know; so I will suggest this course to potential attendees
