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. En el contexto laboral frecuentemente enfrentamos la necesidad de interactuar de manera adecuada según la situación comunicativa lo amerite, ya sea, reaccionando a situaciones de la vida cotidiana o bien en el lugar de trabajo. Este curso fue diseñado para proporcionar al trabajador herramientas lingüísticas que permitan facilitar interacciones básicas comunes en el lugar de trabajo. De este modo, el estudiante podrá ampliar su inventario léxico y gramatical en el idioma inglés, aumentando así su valor profesional y su competencia laboral, contribuyendo no solo movilidad laboral sino que también social. La metodología auto-instruccional permitirá al estudiante gestionar su propio tiempo de estudio y podrá compatibilizarlo con las exigencias diarias del trabajo, a un ritmo que se adecúe a su proceso de aprendizaje individual. Aún más importante, el curso se dicta en modalidad online, en formato masivo, accesible en distintos lugares del mundo a través de la web de 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.

1.- Quiero aprender Ingles, y me enseñan técnicas pero totalmente en ingles

2.- No puedo ni hacer las evaluaciones

3.- por 8 horas de videos de nivel básico ahora me cobran antes solo cobraban si querías un certificado de la universidad que impartió el curso.

https://www.coursera.org/ se esta volviendo un negocio en algún punto se perdieron los ideales de llevar a cualquier persona aprendizaje

a​si como en otros, deben dar la opcion de pagar el certificado antes, durante o al final del curso, porque pagaria algo que no me gusta si fuese asi? no tienen criterio o que? porque cobran algo en medio de una leccion? porque siempre todos siguen con la misma forma corriente y ordinaria de pedir plata?
