About the Course

This is the third course in the Learn English: Advanced Speaking and Listening specialization. In this class you will learn about different types of conversations you will have in academic settings. You will also learn some strategies for helping you understand other people's meaning and for helping you express yourself effectively. Learners will record several videos of themselves participating in assigned group discussions with their own friends and upload the videos for peer feedback. While this might seem intimidating, it will be a great opportunity for you to practice and improve your discussion skills. Please note that the free version of this class gives you access to all of the instructional videos and handouts. The peer feedback and quizzes are only available in the paid version....

the courses offers options for passing the peer assignments which is impossible for learner who live in non English speaker countries. it ask you to do a video with friends but they ignore the fact that you can't get English speaker friends in our country to do the video. they offer another option which is doing the video with your peers which is also impossible as there is no discussion forum to communicate with your peers. but still the knowledge offered in the course is amazing
