We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our Italian classes so far, and feel that we’ve learnt a huge amount in a short space of time. Laura is a wonderful teacher – patient and encouraging, she is able to communicate new learning clearly and effectively. The lessons are always engaging and well-paced, with a good balance of new input and revision that’s delivered via a range of different media. A varied mix of audio recordings, news articles and discussion exercises helps students develop a broad range of skills, and ensures that lessons never get boring. Grammar points are explained clearly and succinctly, with well-chosen examples. Above all, the classes are great fun, and we’ve often found we’ve grasped new concepts without even realising! Overall we’re highly impressed with the course, and are delighted to have signed up for the follow-on elementary classes.
