This is a very useful course even if you are very good in English . This course helps in understanding the type of sentences, proper usage of commas and perfect ways of writing attractive paragraphs.

I am very satisfied with this course. It really helped me to improve my writing skills, and I am feeling more confident than I used to be.\n\nAfter this course, I am planning to take up the next one.

Although it should be simple enough, i found it hard to understand the material and sometimes, the videos would end without finishing the content.

This course is helpful and I have learned quite a bit about punctuation and sentence structures.
However, while things like tense are important, to be able to differentiate 12 tenses contributes relatively little to typical academic writing. Rather, I have had trouble with seemingly simple questions such as when to use past tense and when to use present tense in a literature review. But these aspects are probably the most useful when it comes to pracital writing. It would be helpful if these issues are addressed.
Also, the use of articles is a common weakness for a lot of students (to "the" or not to "the"). It is helpful to include this component too.

I would have liked some more depth in the course. While the course name says "punctuation", it deals only with commas and to a small extent, with semicolons. The assignments and practice exercises need to be tougher. Also, given that this course is taken by students from all over the globe, it should mention that the "serial comma" is not mandatory in all writing styles.

Kind of... too basic?

A solid course for those who require a refresher on certain grammar rules. But, in my opinion, the course should go deeper in the different parts of the English grammar. For example, what are gerunds or infinitives? Still a good course though! I really enjoyed the teacher, as well.

I had a good time learning new things which are generally not told in your academics.
Thanks to UCI for offering it. Best wishes.

I think this is a good review for someone who has the basic in English grammar; however, if you're an ESL student or English-speaking person (who need to start over in grammar).
Study first before starting this course.
A lot of the feedback in the forum, I found to be poor except when it came from an English-speaking person.
You get a lot of: " OK, Great, etc..", no real feedback.

I couldn't finish it without purchasing it, in spite of active participation and high scores on all the assignments I had access to.

It was alright. Thought I would learn more than that, but I'm very thankful for learning about comma structure and so on.

It provides essential information neither about punctuation nor about grammar. I would say it is too superficial. Advanced learners will not gain new knowledge.

I wish that the lessons could have gone a bit more in depth and have more abilities to give the students practice or interactions with instructors.
