  • Phoebe said: The classes were great - would have liked if the classes went for more weeks! Would love an Intermediate or Advanced Beginners course. The tutor was great and explained everything so well!

  • Lyn said: Small group, which is best for this type of course due to the need for a lot of individual attention. Great tutor, very experienced in this subject, friendly and helpful. I would recommend this course. As a full time employee working in the city I am pleased that you have these courses in the evening, and in the CBD. Only negative comment is the problems with the lifts.
