Kjempebra. Group interaction and friendly behavior of teacher.
Mest av alt på dette kurset likte jeg at det var interaktivt og veldig godt strukturert.
Hva likte du mest ved dette kurset? teacher's skill and her in detail explanation Hva likte du ikke ved dette kurset? More exercises/tasks to practice on nouns/verbs will be helpful in the lingu website
