Extremely informational, well presented, with questions that stimulate reflection. The optional reading material is food for thought. I hope to see more courses from the same professor and University.
The course was well-organised and very interesting. It covered the different aspects of linguistics wonderfully and prompted me to delve further into specific fields of linguistics such as phonetics.

I am essentially learning languages for work or for fun but this course gave me an opportunity to consolidate some knowledge / understanding about languages and across many languages. Excellent!

Good introduction to linguistics led by a charming Professor with great enthusiasm for his subject. It was certainly enough to convince me that the study of linguistics is not for me

It's fantastic to have a brief look into the intriguing Linguistics. There's so much to learn. But some of the readings and test might be too difficult and improper for a beginner.

There's just one problem: the exams. The questions and logic behind the answers are not clear enough. It's an excellent course and certainly, it would be relevant to my career.
The course was a nice introduction to linguistics, many topics were covered, but not in a very detailed way. I was expecting more examples from different languages.

Interesting way of presenting the basics of linguistics. Helps a lot to organise crucial informatinon in one's memory. Lessons, however, are too similar.
By Jianqiu C•
Good introduction course for linguistics, although some quiz questions are asked ambiguously and no choises looks right, and no one knows the answer.
By Nata S•
A very nice introduction, covers a variety of topics that different branches of linguistics study, is not theory-heavy and is quite entertaining.
By William F•
This is a decent introduction to the field of linguistics that is easy to understand and accessible to those without previous content knowledge.
By Hazem A•
A great introduction to linguistics! Enjoyable although I found some difficulties in some topics! Recommend it to all beginners in the field.
By Sallai K•
It was an interesting course overall but I wish it was more detailed in some areas. However, it a comprehensive course of the basics.
A comprehensive introductory course to the study of linguistics. Would be even better if it covers more applied linguistics topics.

Very nice work on the various fields of Linguistics, high level interviews, but rather laborious and time consuming quizzes.
By Paveen P•
The only downside is that it was too short. Very informative and I've learned a lot that would prove useful in psychology.
By Liz J•
I enjoyed the course and learned a lot. I wish there had been more interaction in the discussions, though.

Es un buen curso. Una lástima (y una sorpresa) que no tenga un video conclusivo luego del último módulo.
By Xiaoyun Y•
It is a great course including details and all aspects of linguistics. It satisfies my curiosity!

Thank you for your great effort making this course possible for people from all over the world.

Material is excellent and very interesting. Test questions can be confusing and poorly phrased.
By Genevieve L D K•
Very enjoyable however, I feel that Quiz Three needs to be looked over for software problems.
By Antonella C•
Very interesting and passionating course even for people who are new to linguistic.
By Tianyu Z•
It is a great introduction course, covering every aspect related to linguistics.
