Fun and creative
While the classroom is nice with good natural lighting, it can be quite noisy with the traffic... But no big deal... We can't have it all...
The interaction between the teacher and each student. Good explanations and plenty of opportunities to ask questions. Also lots of possibilities to practice pronunciation.
Substitute teacher - not personally - just the interruption

Innholdet i elektronikkmaterialene er veldig bra og interessant, men det vil være mer perfekt hvis det gjøres mer brukervennlig.
