I love this course! Very interesting and I definitely learned a lot! Thank you for making this!

There are some flaws, like there are some mistakes in the text or sometimes the answers are incorrect. I hope you can correct them so future students won't be confused.

Very interesting, highly recommended.

I took all four courses to complete the verified program and thought they were great, even though there were some Technical Platform Issues (that were eventually solved) and a couple of exercises (change to have a similar meaning using a given word) that could be answered correctly in different ways but if you did not write the correct way....wrong answer.

I do recommend the course to all those that want to improve their English and/or give their English knowledge an intense refreshing course.

Congratulations to all the staff, technical team and others that contribute to making this course possible.

Best regards, Carmela Gilarranz Runge

The structure of the course is very interesting and it is about the 4 fundamental skills we need to learn a language (reading, writing, listening and speaking).

I have founded -in my opinion- small errors in some exercises (especially in that exercises when you need to fill gaps, sometimes I got a bad note for a contraction or for a different word that means the same that the expected answer).

In general, it is a marvelous course, but the creators need to review the course at 100% to check the little errors that I think it have.

Thank you so much.

For me it was a good way to practice english language, but it need to improve some exercise because some of them don't have different possibilities, sometimes is very hard to find the exact right answer. For example, in one exercise they told me to form a phrase with one word, that phrase have so many ways to said it but they only give you one possibility and few tries.

Anyway, as a recommendation, it will be great if they could add more videos with conversations or an interview.

This course was interesting: I greatly appreciated every moment I spent here. But, if I could share something in order to improve it, I would say that in my view some multichoice exercises need to be fixed.
