Excellent location, great teachers and administrative personnel. A colleague of mine couldn't speak English well, but Teresa was friendly and helpful. Interesting and useful course (really practical suggestions and ideas). The guided tour was original and really fun: I don't usually love walking with groups, but this time has been great! Well organized trip.

The course in general and the apps we saw were interesting but I thing it would have been better to see less apps and to deepen their knowledge

The course was very useful for me as I learnt about many apps and Websites that I can use in my lessons now and also those that help me prepare my lessons more easily. Moreover, the Teacher was awesome and really knew what he was talking about, so it was good to follow and to really take something out of the course.

The course is great for those who want to move forward with the use of new technology. The entire course material is provided through practical classes, real-time activities with specified programs. Lorenzo is a great teacher, he knows his job and willingly explains things even if they are not related to the course. Thank you.
