they enjoyed their experience at CREIPAC

“Dear CREIPAC, I again did not have time to say thank you for all the effort you put in organising my CREIPAC classes and my homestay. The teachers were very helpful like last visit and the rest of the CREIPAC staff as well. I struggled a little at first but improved when I went down a class. There was a good environment all around and I made some good friends. Perhaps there will be a next time, time will tell. Christian and Susanna were great hosts and looked after me as if I was back in Australia. Have a good easter and regards to all the staff.”
