Great class. Some slides show awful colors. I think that could be improved. Also professional transition betwixt slides could give the course a more "polished" look.

I was an awesome course. Week 1 and week 2 was the most helpful. But, I found week 3' and week 4's contents to be given more time than it should be actually given.

This course is really useful, clear and well-organized.

It is not only teaching me how to use punctuation correctly, also developing my logical thinking in English.

A very good review on punctuation and tense. However, I think the course is a little too simple. I hope that the class could cover more grammar topics in depth.

This course gave me a clear understanding of punctuation, transitions, parallel structures etc. I have revised tense forms as well. That was a good practise.

When I studied English, I didn't give too much attention to puntuation, and this course emphasizes on that. Also, it gives you a complete verb tenses' review.

I enjoyed this course. In order to plan the next step, however, I would like to see a video explaining how all the courses in the Specialization fit together.

It was a very useful class for me. A lot of topics, in which I was confused, were clarified during the course. However, not all punctuation rules were given.

I think for the homework part could be more challenge, and some of the exercise pages could not be opened. Overall, it is a great course, and I recommended.

I thought I would write more, but in reality, we learn here how to use comma or how to think about good writing. In any case, it is helpful for writing.

Although the course was too easy for my level, I still liked it. The videos were short and relevant, and the instructor knows how to keep you engaged.

It si a great course! The minor comment, combining the subject of variety of sentences with commas and parallel structures could be a bit overloading.

Taking into account the amount of resources and the qulity of them, the material of the course is old-fashion. All the content looks old and boring.

Great course. I definitely learned a lot. If you have a good grasp on grammar, a lot of this should be review. Overall, a lot of useful information.
