I took the class weekend session, and it was awesome! Cara, the teacher was really inspiring, and all the topics she had were interesting. She taught us a lot about American history and especially about Maryland and Baltimore. We had a lot of fun. Cara loves what she is doing, and she was so motivated and so excited to teach us. She lived in Italy for a little while and also in New York and told us really interesting stories. She also worked with Ted Talks and YouTube, and we had great discussions. Also, we did group work and talked a lot, which was really helpful. Sunday night we went together to a restaurant and spent time together ‘til 9 pm and talked and talked and talked.... I highly recommend this class. ”
