    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.

    I gained a lot of information.The listening section was very useful.The grammar section was also useful.I revised alot of the vocabulary that I studied.I wish there Will be practicing for conversation on line

    I would have suggested this course to many people but unfortunately, it will be removed from the site in 2 weeks. However, I enjoyed this class and learning a lot. I would suggest for the future to have an exam before starting the course and after finishing the course. So, learners can evaluate themselves before and after then decide how much they have learned from this course.

    It has been interesting for me because it has helped me to listen to English and to record myself and listen to me speaking English. There are some exercises that when correcting them have put them as erroneous and I think that it is not fair, especially when I have used the contraction, because it is very disappointing.

    This course, and the other three ones which complete the series, are really useful to brush up your English skills or revise vocabulary and grammar. And moreover, you can train every skill required in an official exam: reading, writing, listening and speaking.

    The course is very complete, with lots of useful contents and information. It is very easy to follow at your own path. It is quite challenging sometimes and provides important clues for the learning process. Definitely I would recommend it to other students1

    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.
