About the Course

In a professional environment, we’re often faced with the need to respond appropriately according to what the situation calls for, whether it be related to situations in daily life or the workplace. This course was designed to provide the worker with linguistic tools which will enable greater ease in basic communications in the workplace. This way, the student will be able to broaden their lexical and grammatical repertoire in English, thus increasing their professional value and skill, and contributing to not only professional but also social mobility. The methodology of self-guided instruction will allow the student to manage their own study time, so that they can integrate coursework with the daily demands of their professional life at a rhythm adequate for their own learning process. More importantly, the course is held online, distributed massively, and accessible anywhere in the world through Coursera.

The lectures were very simple and easy to follow. Also, it was good that the number of quizzes is only few because there are already practice questions in every lecture.

Para terminar el curso debo pagar y pierde un poco el sentido de establecer tiempos para completar el curso. Considero que está bien que el certificado tenga un costo, quizás debieron poner esa opción al momento de realizar examen final, pero no los test intermedios.

The course was really great for someone who didn't have a good background in English grammar like me. After the course, I have acquired basic knowledge of vocabulary, grammar, and writing skills. Thank you very much!

I appreciated this course really much. I didn't use much English during the pandemic so, my skill is a bit dull. This course strengthened my basics and made me want to study English again. Thanks a million!
