"very balanced, with sections dedicated to technicalities and interpersonal relations"

Olga J.

The good sound quality and simple, well-designed slides make lessons easy to follow. The course is very balanced, with various sections dedicated to technicalities and interpersonal relations. Instructions are clear and situations given as examples are treated professionally. I especially liked that course has a section on emails because while it may seem obvious or unimportant, once you really start to work with people via email all kinds of questions and doubts arise and it’s nice to have such concise and logical instructions.
