This is an excellent course which is very relevant to my field of work as my job involves helping native English speakers to communicate more clearly by adapting their language in international settings. I have found the videos, articles and comments very interesting and useful and the course is presented in a really engaging way. I particularly enjoy the quizzes and practice activities such as Practising negotiation of meaning in Week 3.
I highly recommend this course to anyone interested in international communication.
