The WSET L2 course was really enjoyable. The classes took place in a wine shop, so it was a really immersive environment. Our teacher was so knowledgeable, inspirational, but also explained everything in a way that was really easy to understand. The wines we tasted were all of a great standard (some of which I still buy regularly almost a year later), and I went in to the exam feeling really confident.
