2 – The material helps women during their first steps towards entrepreneurship and to understand their potential

3 – Women liked to share experiences and discuss

4 – These is a need of such courses in the society

The following session will examine the notion of culture, the relation between the culture and the language and the importance of understanding cultural differences.
