Intro to Radio Podcasting

Dear Sir or Madam, I am very disappointed. I did not actually have an experience. I showed for class on the first day early only to be told that the class was not at the listed address(Brooklyn Library, Main Branch). I was at the New Lots branch. I had to get on another train and ride 25 minutes. I commuted from New Jersey, by the way. So I get to the New Lots location and the instructor ask to see my confirmation. I show him and he informs me that although my confirmation stated that I was enrolled and that the class was free, the class is actually $50. That wasn't the biggest issue. He then tells me that I have to leave because I am not a Brooklyn resident. I really would like to be placed in another class for podcasting to compensate me for my time and energy.

I was clumsy with the wire and cutting at first, but with Ms. Alicia's patient and friendly manner of teaching, and giving us individual attention, that soon went away. I left with a beautiful chain (MY creation, effort and energy!) and showed it off at work on Monday. Looking forward to another class with Ms. Alicia. Thank you.

Because it was cancelled and we were not notified was standing over 1 hour. It would have been food to been advised by Course Horse.then again whatever, maybe you don't know in advance

The class was great, however coursehorse listed the class as FREE, which is was not. Additionally, when I showed up I hadn't actually been enrolled, which makes me wonder why I bothered signing up through coursehorse... this has happened to me before. User beware, maybe sign up at the actual website of the course.
