    Debbie Ali United States of America Very good beginning course! A bit difficult at times to navigate between the screen and the videos (even in split screen mode). Maybe more quizzes in between courses or more individual exercises to reinforce learning? Otherwise great videos! 2016-07-24 05:07:41
