Students have rated their experience extremely highly. For instance, on the recent

Italian classes the feedback was so very positive “The atmosphere set by Rossella made learning easy and fun and gave everyone confidence to join in.” “I have learnt so much. The way it is taught involves us all so we all feel very much a group.”

Another student really appreciated “a real Spanish teacher to ensure correct pronunciation.”

A student on Reiki 2 thought that the tutor “Annie is amazing. I feel blessed to have met such a person and group at this time in my life.”

A student on the Clothes Making, Alterations + Soft Furnishing course really enjoyed “Learning new skills, the social side of it – meeting and making friends, exchanging ideas with others. The tutor was great.”

On the Archaeology course this student was “Impressed by the incredible knowledge of the lecturer plus the hands-on bit where we examined archaeological artefacts.” Another loved the tutor’s enthusiasm for the subject and his depth of knowledge. 

On the Painting with Watercolours course a student stated “Instructor stretches us, she has an easy manner and is encouraging, creative and challenging. A real pleasure!”

People were very impressed by the progress and artefacts they had made in such a short time “Exciting to learn new skills and was thrilled to make a silver ring in my very first week!”

This student on the Wellbeing through Mindfulness course found that “This course has helped me to deal much better with anxiety and stress. I also have learned to take time to concentrate on myself and how I am feeling, and not let things bother me so much.” And on the Yoga course, a student loved “Everything! Yoga has helped me relax and it has been lovely to meet new people”.

Overall, the relaxed atmosphere in classes was flagged up – the friendliness of the group making people feel at ease; how much fun it was to learn; appreciation of the knowledge of the teachers.
