“I learned a lot from this class and I am very satisfied. The speed of the class very pretty fast, but in a good way, I learned to focus very, very well on the class and pushed myself to do homework and re-cap of the class right after I get home so that I would not forget what I learn from the class. I already enrolled myself to take another 4 weeks class with Ms Nabila. Thank you very much.”
