This is a really good course for gaining a grounding in HTML and CSS for building a basic, functioning website with styling. The tutor was very knowledgable and clearly has a lot of experience in website builds which meant he could really help with all our questions, even if they weren't strictly within the level of the course. I am now keen to complete the intermediate course.

The course was enjoyable, was accessible and I am now much more capable of applying the skills than I ever thought I could be. This course is a huge credit to City Lit.
