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.

Focused too much on commas. Could have incorporated other grammar elements as well. Nevertheless, a very good, easy-to-follow course.
