Excellent material, excellent activities, but today I am having problems to log in the course and I have already missed a week without doing my homework which is too bad for me. I have enrolled this course and I really want to continue till the end. My e-mail is email@example.com and I would appreciate your help.

Hassan Mohamed Hassan completed this course, spending 7 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
To be honest, going through the whole Sentence Guide course (where you write 10 essays in total), will probably be too long.
