    Great Experience - Una Gran Experiencia (English/Spanish)

    I must say that so far I have taken two courses and both have been very good and I have learned a lot. This course in particular I was impressed by the dedication of the staff, who were very professional and provided us with a lot of knowledge in a wide range of areas, from culinary art to beekeeping. The course itself is stress-free, easy and entertaining. I recommend it to everyone. I'm looking forward to sign up in the next course.
    Debo decir que hasta ahora he tomado dos cursos y los dos han sido muy buenos y he aprendido mucho. Este curso en particular me impresiono la dedicaciĆ³n del staff, quienes fueron muy profesionales y nos entregaron muchos conocimientos en una amplia gama de areas, desde el arte culinario hasta apicultura. El curso en si no tiene stress, es fĆ”cil y entretenido, Lo recomiendo a todos. Me inscribirĆ© en otros cursos pronto.
