    I have been informing you that the pages with the activities to record my voice do not work, all the "Speaking" Exercises, I have not been able to deliver them, I have already tried to work them on the Chrome, Edge and Firefox browsers, as well as on Windows and Mac platforms.

    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.

    I feel that this course could be more completed if they had had more expressions with phrasal verbs, but I can train my skills. So, I'm happy. Thanks.
