    It is a properly course. I liked the way the content was seen.

    I suggest to improve audio quality: sometimes is difficult to understand. It is necessary to check the videos transcripts as well. (I found typos).

    Thanks for the course!

    Through this course, I have chance to enhance my English skills in many aspects. I have contacted with a lot of Business topics, learned more the Vocabulary and Grammar, especially I can supplement one of the important skills is how to make the business writing properly according to the situations.

    After this course, I am more confident of English and more efficient when use English for communication. Not only in listening and speaking but also I know how to use the vocabulary, grammar and writing rules more suitably. I think this course helps me to improve my English fluency a lot.

    The exercises are somehow tricky because there could be more than one correct answer. However alternative answers are marked wrong. Also, the level of this course is lower intermediate. Find it not challenging/informative enough for upper-intermediate learners.
