    Amanda Lopes Sousa Brazil The course proposes great systems for getting students to begin to talk, write and read using a foreign language, and overcoming inhibitions. It makes it easy to understand basic language, and to use it quickly and practically, so can increase motivation very quickly. All the topics brought extensives insights for teachers, how to deal with each students particularly respecting the backgrounds. Great course. 2017-01-27 19:01:01
