    Kirill completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    Very interesting and relevant content, although requires a bit of effort to follow from uninitiated people like myself - due to an occasional delve into basic neuroscience. Office hours, where Prof. Hernandez was answering questions from the forums, were a great addition to the course. On the downside, the quizzes were somewhat weak.

    Overall - recommended for everyone who is even remotely interested in how several languages work in your brain.
  • Madeline completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.

    Prof. Hernandez was a very clear and interesting lecturer and as a bilingual person, it was amazing to get some insight into the neural functioning of how the brain processes language.

    This was a great course. Too bad it was removed from Coursera: I wanted to rewatch a couple of videos. I also bought the book.

    Excellent course for those who want's to learn how two languages live in one brain. Good for language teachers and parents of bilingual children.
