I totally loved it, from beginning to end. Great concept, well-structured curriculum, with lots of knowledge. Thanks. (some videos lacked the Italian caption, but in fact this can be easily bridged)

Quiz questions are too difficult, some are too general, but the answers hide in small details. It is really unfriendly for a beginner.
