Lawrence's engaging and friendly style of delivery. It's hard learning something new, but Lawrence was never condescending, instead, always very encouraging. Martina
The instructor (Lawrence) was extremely knowledgeable and engaging throughout this 10-week course. I learned heaps more than expected.
