It was a very interesting course with a very engaged group of participants that made it even better. The teacher Silvia is very friendly and she made us feel very welcome. Her teaching style is interesting and interactive. It was my first experience in Erasmus K1 courses and it just gave me the motivation to learn more. Thank you 🙂
