    "Irene Koukia is a very approachable person from what I could see and hear, and she shared her valuable ideas and resources with us. I like the way she went into details such as how to present oneself, or where to find a free CAT tool, giving all sorts of links. I would like to thank her for opening my eyes as there are lots of things I didn't realize I could do on my own, such as getting a specialisation free of charge! I can't wait for the release of the recording of the course to go through all the info and get my profile sorted out properly. Thank you, Irene!"

    The trainer provided carefully thought-out information which I found useful and appropriate to the course description. I am trying to get oriented with CAT tools, to begin using them, and I found the information understandable and pertinent.
