Kursisternes Oplevelser


Det har været meget lærerigt, at deltage i undervisningen. William Frost er en meget dygtig og inspirerende underviser som giver meget relevant og brugbar feedback. Desuden er William meget venlig, vidende og humoristisk - og det jo altid fremmende for et læringsforløb. Jeg er blevet meget motiveret til at lære mere og håber, at jeg igen får lige så dygtig en underviser.

Eksemplarisk udførelse af differentieret undervisning, da deltagernes kompetencer var meget forskellige. Fokus er på værktøjer til selvhjælp frem for slavisk gennemgang og udenadslære. Der er stor opmærksomhed på den enkelte deltagers specifikke spørgsmål og udfordringer, med rig mulighed for at fordybe sig i netop det, der kan hjælpe en videre med akademisk engelsk skriftlighed. Selv som person med engelsk som modersmål fik jeg rigt udbytte af kurset.

William er en meget dygdig underviser. Han har nogle ritgtige gode opskrifter på alle de regler, som man nemt kan huske, hvordan de skal bruges. William går også meget dybt i det han underviser. Han er dygtig til at forklare og det er dejligt at han også kan forklare på dansk. "anonym"
