Hola! Dejo mi devolución en español para los backpackers que no se animan a hacer el curso por el idioma, Annika es muy paciente y si no entiendes vuelve a explicarte con otras palabras, habla muy claro. Aprendí bien todas las técnicas y me voy con muchas herramientas, recomiendo mucho 😁

My 2 and 4 year old both do lessons with Miss Annie and are improving so much! The kids are always excited to come to their lessons and Miss Annie is amazing at connecting with them and making lessons fun while teaching them all the skills they need.
