  • Fatima Kilic Azerbaijan Thank you all for such course. I have already passed the final exam))) 2015-02-17 18:02:23
  • Elisa Terranova Italy very interesting course, but some topics are not so clear! 2015-02-17 11:02:54
  • John Luton United States of America All in all the course was very good and it was a great refresher for me. It could be improved by having some way to increase the speaker's volume. She had a very nice voice, which was easy to listen to, but sometimes quite difficult to hear. She also read very quickly sometimes. I had a little difficulty following her, and I'm sure that true beginners would have some difficulty too. However, I did enjoy the course and found it very helpful. Thanks! 2015-02-06 16:02:16
