The course is very useful to learn English and also has some fun.

For me, listening is not easy but, listening to pop is a kind of sensational attempt.

Grammar is basic but I didn't get good points. I learned that writing with grammar is not different with grammar as knowledge.

The good thing is to stimulate curiosity to learn English. Writing lecture as review is very useful.

It's a shame that record function doesn't drive in iPhone directly.

It is needed to be improved.

Anyway, I am good to finish this course.
