“The seminar was great and I learned a lot in just a few hours. As a foreigner, I was struggling with some minor grammar issues that we discussed in class and it immediately made a difference. Our instructor, Glynis, is a real treasure. She brought some common grammar mistakes to our attention and gave us very valuable advice on how to avoid them.”
