It is a good way to practise and improve your English skills with a variety exercises, but sometimes explanations are vague and not enough to achieve proposed exercises. Alsoyou need more time to complete every unit, very different from the time specified at the beginning of the course. Is a way to point out what topics you have to review or check again by your own.

The course is great but some of the activities are subject to the choice of the platform/teacher because there are more than one ways to answer specially the complete the sentence or change sentence to have a similar meaning. Also the use of the vocabulary is mostly in British English so US spelling is taken as a fault!

This course is very helpful, with a lot of exercise to encourage to practice, not just writing, but talking and to a better understand, and improve our vocabulary.

The videos let you to understand, and participate in countries where people only speak English.

Well structured course that touches on differents aspects, it's content is explained thoroughly.

One issue though is that some questions are ambiguous, furthermore, the speaking activites are not working properly, other than that really useful and helpful.

The course is well constructed but the timing is a little too pressing as the things to do are numerous.
