I’m very satisfied with the course, it really fulfilled my expectations. The course was about Crative Thinking, I already was very interested on this subject because it’s directly related with my classes, with developing motivation… The course was very well organized: the place was fine, in the university in Prague, we had a classroom just for the course, they lend us some materials and sent some information by mail. The teacher, Denisa, was fantastic, she is a psycologist who is teaching at the Czeck University. She gave us the schedule for the week (wich had been already sent to us by mail)

I have attended to the course 'Encouraging Creative Thinking', with the great teacher Smriti. My experience has been really positive, thanks partially to my English level that has allowed me to understand everything (all the explanations and the other participant's speech) and to participate actively every day. From my point of view a certain English level should be required (at least B2) to attend to the course. I have my mind plenty of new ideas and new apps that will help me to cope with every kind ok student and keep his/her attention. I have had a lot of fun and a lot of new knowlegde.
