Just a note to say thanks for the Java Course, I found it very enjoyable and am delighted to have just received my result.

I found your teaching style to be excellent , there are a lot of experts that can't communicate their knowledge but you always got your point across simply and in a way that let us easily understand it. This is a great skill to have.
