The most dynamic lesson in my career

Grzegoz, English-for-Adults Teacher, Poland

I used your poster set on UN Peace Day

Ameena and Adam have been a smash hit with the students. Everybody was there, the teachers, the principal, the students were so excited. You should have been there! They want to know more about using YL media at school. Our principal has already put up an exhibit on the school ground.

Everybody, teachers and students agree

the interactive Poster Exhibit designed by Crash Coursers was the best thing at our school’s project day. Germany

Without any teaching experience and 20 years out of school

I have given 3 presentations, at 3 schools, to 3 classes age 11-14. Each was different, knew more or less on global issues. I easily freestyled for each group. All students loved it, teachers said this is what school should always be like, and all 3 enthusiastically asked me to come back to learn how they can take action. Precisely as you predicted. I fully trust your guidance.
