I am used to another English MOOCS .

These courses are arduos,boring,slow,above all the grammar videos are very long and the after exercises are difficult so we have not time to retain so many information.

IDEA (Pdfs with the lists of phrasal verbs,or expressions,,,)

To correct three students exercises is complicated we are not teachers .

IDEA (Not 3 )

The 4 courses are repetitive .

Some exercises are quite difficult to understand ,the ones that you have to change trhe words to change the meaning .

But anyway of course THANKS .I appreciate your work it must be hard to prepare a funny,serious English course

I have completed them and I have learnt a lot of vocabulary and new subjects.

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.

The course is very comprehensive and easy to follow, at your own pace. I took a lot of advantage to it in order to improve my English.

Moreover, the topics are quite interesting and attractive.

I would strongly recommend it for students at intermediate level who want to make progress and improve their level, either at reading, writting, listening, grammar and even speaking.

I'm very satisfied with it and will go for the rest of courses.

Thank you all the team for your work and wish you a great success.

This is the second course of a series of four which will help you revise or improving your English. You will practise all communicative skills, this is, speaking, reading, listening and writing. The variety of topics studied will provide you a good range of vocabulary and grammar structures.

I liked the course very much it is very helpful and one striking thing for me was that it not only present tasks for the topic viewed but also sometimes it mixed up with other grammar lessons, also the explanations are straightforward and concise.

My special focus was on grammar which has been very skillfully carried putting into plug holes. The listening and writing exercise was very effective and i say it was not a simpler course.
