Some practices did not show up on my computer. There needs to be more examples for each point being presented and more additional resources.

It's interesting. I am unsure if the feedbacks that I give or receive is correct. It would be helpful if someone moderates and verifies it.

The course is good, but I think it will be even better if it covers more about the 16 tenses, more punctuation, and capitalization. Thanks!

I would have bought the course, but it was very expensive for me. Because of this I didn't have acess to all content and I could't enjoy.

Good course. I would have liked to do more practice excersises since it is different to analyse sentences than to write my own sentences.
