Genevieve looks back at what we covered in Week 1 of the course

We’ve really enjoyed reading all your comments, do please do keep them coming! Here’s what Eunice had to say about her national dish. It was great fun reading all the idioms you shared with us too. Here are some Russian idioms from Irene.
