Some feedback from others on this course's trainer:


"Excellent job. Max was well-prepared, engaged the audience, and kept things fun and relatable. He gave useful, practical advice with just the right amount of context and explanation. I thought he was easy to understand and displayed a good command of the language used for the presentation (English)."
SLMorales




"As a native speaker of English, I'm impressed with what Max as a non-native speaker can hear and transcribe - that I cannot - an interesting and inspiring lesson. It shows me that interpreting difficult sections is an acquired skill, in conjunction with the techniques he taught, and that I can aim for the same for my non-native languages."
Peter Ross

Dear Max,

is it absolutely necessary for this webinar to have Windows 10 or can Windows 7 suffice, too?

Kind regards,
Marietta
