    I really liked the content of the Course ... however ...

    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.

    Realmente me gustó el contenido del Curso... sin embargo...

    He estado informándoles que no funcionan las páginas con las actividades para grabar mi voz, todos los Ejercicios de "Speaking", no los he podido entregar, ya intenté trabajarlos en los navegaroes Chrome, Edge y Firefox, así como en plataformas Windows y Mac.

    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 course has some mistakes, that in my opinion are serious. I notice that the grammar is not Adequate as the level of other parts such us use of english, word formation, for example. I notice mistakes in listening too, in which the answer does not correspond in what you hear. Some readings are too large and complicated for an intermediate level.
    I recommend putting examples on all exercises, just to clear things up. In addition to adequate the level of the curse to an intermediate one, because some parts are very basic and don’t contribute to the learning experience and other that are very close to an not intermediate curse.
