This course is considerably more challenging than absolute beginner's, but all the better for that. We had lots of fun, too.

It is well-conceived, well delivered and fun, but requires background work to make the best of it.

The teacher is very good - skilled, patient, generates a friendly atmosphere in the classroom, and expects about the right amount from you to push you but not too hard.
