The teacher made the class interactively good and you wouldn't think you like to miss a class because you know you would learn a new thing. I can measure my transition of understanding with the way the teacher (Marianne) presents the materials, the open candor to answer and relate the answer in the right proportion. The sentence structure, verbs, negation, adjectives and grammatical elements and others are the the things I took in the A1 class. I am grateful.

I like the course and I look forward to A2 class
