It was magnificent. We did a lot of things regarding methodology. We presented and watched a lot of varied lessons. I recommend this course in Instanbul to many candidates. In addition, it is a chance to visit many places in the city.

I could not be any more… Read more “It shifted my teaching concepts to a whole new direction”
