  • 8. What do people say about the course?‘Your sessions focused in on the bits you needed to know. You could spendhours reading or trying to get that yourself and not really get there.’I tried reading some grammar books before thecourse, as I knew it was a weak area, and to behonest, I may as well have been readingRussian...whereas having the course initially makes thereading of some of those books much better.’‘I loved this course! I’m teaching adults now and I honestly don’tknow how I would have survived without it.’‘The content was practical, interesting (you get extrapoints for that given the rather dry subject matter!) andchallenging enough without discouraging.
