I think the pace could have been faster, but then again it was A1, so perhaps it was appropriate.

Hva likte du mest ved dette kurset?

It has a lot of excercises, good explinations, and I get to practice speaking, reading and writing.

Hva likte du ikke ved dette kurset?

Sometimes in breakouts I get paired with people who are really bad at speaking so I don`t learn as much.

Noen flere kommentarer til din kursopplevelse?

I liked Milan's classes the best, he makes everyone have to try and read and answer because he doesn't ask for volunteers. I am shy when it comes to reading and speaking and he made me loosen up more. But everyone is great. Tusen takk.
