Beate's teaching style. She interacted a lot with students and provided fun class activities.
Group practise and reading
Fond of new words is low
timing. 7-9 pm is really late
I'm looking forward to A2!
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.
There is nothing to mention.
I understand that it was only A1, but maybe it should be a little bot more speaking exercises in the end of A1
Liten gruppe, lærer og all the learning material and exersices.
It is really a lot information at once, but it is a fast track course
As far its the best courses that I had
