Katie is the best english teacher! makes every class fun. You don't want to skip a class! We talked a lot, so it was a great space to practice our english and make us feel more confident with it. Definetely the best option is take all the classes, and not the small package. I miss having some kind of exam or final test, to know how much I've improved, but it feels better already.
