The course was a great way to learn about Paris. I took it because I wanted to learn about the city I was going to live in and did, in fact, learn a lot. So far, it has helped me fit into the city and have an understanding of some of the culture and history of the city, as well as the thought process of why so many buildings were saved, which allows Paris to be the beautiful city it is today.
The reason I subtracted a one star from my review was that I believe the course pushed too much of the idea that somehow connecting the suburbs of the city with the center will do anything different than it has in every other city: IE - gentrify the suburbs and push the poor further from the city, all the while not solving the underlining issue of disparity between different areas.

It's good info and very comprehensive. But it's in French and I hate reading subtitles. Also - super unusual - there is only one quiz, the final, but you can only make one attempt per month. Not worth it to me.
