Flexibility time-wise, interactivity, access to all materials, variety of tasks, short videos (and possible to change speed when needed)

Hva likte du ikke ved dette kurset?

The clarification of the requirements needed for getting a certificate has been unclear to me from the start. Also sometimes it seems that a lot of work has been done but the progress bar hasn't moved forward:) The percentage bar moves forward very slowly (perhaps an idea to split it to 2 - A1-1 and A1-2 - to get more sense of achievement).

Organization of the course and the teacher's availability to help with all of our doubts

Hva likte du ikke ved dette kurset?

I think maybe the classes should be longer but with a small recess in the middle...? Considering we always correct the homework and need time to do it and to learn new things without rushing

The teacher (Ann-Magritt) has great teaching skills, she is also very humble and patient with the students and deserves all of our gratitude. I noticed a lot of effort from her, she is there before us and leaves the school very late and still she is available to send us material to study and answers her emails. 5* teacher!! Consider her for level B please

A bit slow for me, I think the other group has managed to do more (i just think so), maybe more speaking would be goos as we will listen and speak every day
