I like the teacher and her ability to teach and explain the things on easiest way. She had that sens when she should stop and give us couple minutes to thing when we don´t understand. And if we don´t understand she never give up explaining to us :) As well uploading all info from class meetings deserves a big thumbs up.

Hva likte du ikke ved dette kurset?

There is nothing to mention.
