Tiago is clearly passionate about sharing his profound knowledge on the subject...I have already been to the Royal Alcazar of Seville a couple of times but now I feel I must go back fully “armed” with the knowledge Tiago provided. Certainly, it will be a much richer and more significant experience.


Dimosthenis is not only knowledgeable but his communication skills are formidable [...] It was like having a conversation and not a lecture... He takes your questions seriously and in doing all of this makes the Forum come alive.

His professional, academic, and archaeological experience from digs at the Forum enables him to give insights and fun and interesting facts and information. Highly recommend.


This well organized, carefully delivered, wholly pleasurable lecture was clearly the work of a scholar. The beautiful photos were carefully timed for relevance, the maps most helpful, the wide range of information absorbing and suggestive of further avenues to pursue. Overall a treat.


What a great seminar! Andres is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He has great recommendations and is very practical [...] 

I also really enjoyed that he showed some videos of the markets.


Kate Bolton-Porciatti is wonderful! Her lecture was just what I wished for - having been in San Gimignano in 1956.

I wanted to remember that wonderful town and the beautiful area – she made me ache to return and see all the wonderful walled cities of Tuscany!


This lecture was just so good! Since David Hosking is also a walker, he is able to testify that the Camino is inspiring and hard; the pilgrimage quirky, yet set in stone. 

This is the second time I've taken this lecture, and once again I'm impressed with how he breaks it down into who we meet, what we see, monuments to visit, places to stay, weather, and an experience like none other.


I loved the presentation on Romanesque Art in France. At times, I felt a connection with the artisans who sculpted the figures at the entrance of the Romanesque churches because of what seemed a little bit like a sense of humor on their part. I will sign up for other courses with this teacher.


Colonial America and the relationship between Britain, Spain, France, First People, and colonists come to vibrant and dynamic life in this seminar [...]

Fascinating, fast-paced, very well thought out, great visuals, and of course Dr. Bell's usual enthusiasm for the material and great engagement with participants.


I have absolutely enjoyed every Context Learning Conversation that I have purchased. The experts are so knowledgeable and I feel like I know them!!! I am usually unavailable at the live Zooms and watch the recordings during the week when I am not at work. 

I really appreciate you all sending the recordings for those of us unable to join mid-day. Thank you and your incredible experts. I especially have enjoyed Drs. Finn Ballard, Alan Montgomery and Elizabeth Norton. They are my favorite lecturers so far!
