I don't think that some questions are relevant to the week. There could be more questions added to review more material of the course. However, I really did enjoy the course.

A very important course, delivered generously and with a lot of care. It's not the best organized course I've taken, but it is worth all the work to get to the end of it.

Good course, enjoyed it. In my opinion, it would be improved by a video specifically on all sounding our phonic sounds properly.
