Our 10-week course begins on Sunday 31.1.2022 at 2pm. The course schedule includes three weekly classes that are organised on Monday, Wednesday and Sunday. We hope that as many participants would have the chance to attend at least two of the weekly classes, so you can choose which ones fit your schedule the best. If you want, you can also join all the three classes.
