Course testimonials:

  • said: It was an online course but I understand that if it was live it would be at York St in the city. Central and convenient venue. Finally, thanks to Valeria. I really enjoyed the course. The class was very interactive and she is very clear and ensures we all understand before moving on to the next area.

  • said: Our tutor Valeria (German Basic Level 1) was very good, clear, friendly and patient. the final lesson was cancelled due to Covid-19

  • said: Anne facilitated the course in an adaptable manner with various styles as to visual, audio, group work and discussion. It was a good experience and the group bonded in the process as well. I made the diary error unfortunately of not amending to include last night when a class was cancelled, im disappointed in that. Compliments to Anne.

  • said: Met some really nice people, and Valeria was a great teacher. She made things easy to understand and, given she has lived in Germany, she was able to provide practical insight into how the language is spoken by native speakers.

  • said: Valeria was a great teacher, very informative. Overall a well structured course which I would highly recommend, also thoroughly enjoyable.
