Not sure whether the level was indeed B1-B2, the course helped me immensely to start learning French again. Good material, good videos, more links to resources to consolidate learning could be provided. Not sure I would pay for this course though, the quantity (not quality) did not seem enough in my opinion.

An excellent course that I would highly recommend. The best MOOC I have every done for improving my French and great fun too. I love the Coursera Platform, everything runs very smoothly and it is very easy to navigate. This also adds to the pleasure of doing the course. Congratulations to Coursera and the organisers of the MOOC for making this learning experience outstandingly good.
