In general teachers, material and live lessons are good. Teachers resolve any doubt. Kari is an excellent teacher, very professional.

Hva likte du ikke ved dette kurset?

Even though Saira is good teacher, I always have bad luck because my time is not considered when I take the full hour. I am not sure if there is a problem in the system.
Also, it is not possible to download the material. It would be good to have it to consult afterwards.
