Practical demonstration of mediation. Louis is an excellent mediator and it really helped to see it demonstrated. Loved the dedication, enthusiasm and firm belief in worth of BC approach to learning. I really think you opened our eyes to new methods of promoting learning and especially development of language.

Thank you for introducing me to this "life skill". It is wonderful that there is also an online, interactive, support system with resources available.

What I understand about the Basic Concepts Programme is that it is very useful in all subjects. I must implement it in every lesson. I must also try to be as accurate and precise as possible when teaching.

This workshop is one of the most beneficial workshops I have attended. The trainer’s presentation style was warm, easy to follow and understand. I like that he included practical activities, examples and demonstrations.
