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.

A very useful course, specially designed for those who either forgot the grammar or did not study English grammar properly in the journey of learning English. It is a path way to good writing skills.

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

Good videos on grammar and punctuation but not much on writing.

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

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

I believe this course might be helpful for English learners who have not yet grasped more specific areas of the language (such as different types of sentences) and for natives who haven't had much writing advice throughout their lives. I did learn new things, but they were often presented in a monotone and vague way, with few exercises and a weak approach. Moreover, the editing of the videos was outdated, which, as shallow as it may sound, contributed to my disengagement with this course.
There were, however, useful tips and rules I was not aware of, mostly because I tend to apply my native language's punctuation practices to English. Those were certainly a delight to learn, and I'm happy to have had access to it. Even so, I still believe most of it could have been taught more quickly through articles than a whole university-level course.

Poor visual communications, it should be better since it is the only way to follow the course.
Should be nice if the slides counted with a kind of animation to enphatize what we are talking about.

In fact the course is fantastic. I'd say that is perfect, but it is not because requires payment to be assessment in the activities.

Very good course! All explanations are clear and too powerful for understanding.
Two stars because all tests you can submit if purchase certificate.

The class itself is quite good. However you can not submit the Module Quiz without purchasing the certificate, which is quite annoying.

Contents are interesting and useful, even if the course deals with few topics. I think it is too expensive! A good grammar book is cheaper and more complete.
I would not enroll this course anymore.

It was a good course. But it doesn't worth the money. Paying $69 is just too much for this elementary course.

I think it is really necessary to establish better the target auditory for this course. The students with very basic level of English have to study with advanced non-native speakers and with natives. The exercises can be too challenging for the first category, sometimes boring for the second and absolutely superfluous for the third.
