Afraid of confrontation?

Our first cohort was completed by 6 participants, who gave an average rating of 8.2 overall course satisfaction.

I feel way more comfortable walking up to people I don’t know to strike up a conversation. Our instructor Ayan was very knowledgeable, provided theory and did helpful exercises with the class. I can recommend taking this course - you’ll feel confident in your communication afterwards!
