Very Very Poor... I have literarly wasted a ton of money over this. No solved examples or solutions provided to practice.

Honestly, your tactics are useless if you cannot provide solved examples.

Want a refund. Will rate Coursera poorly as well for keeping such a poor course.

It is such a good course to introduce speaking and listening in IELTS test. However, I was expecting more quizzes for practicing listening test rather than quizzes about technical think such as "How long does it take to complete the IELTS speaking test" or "Should I memorize some answers before the test".

Again a very basic level course that lacks real time practice tests. It must have included at least 3 listening and speaking tests for practice.

The tips and strategies provided by the course was great. But I was expecting more than that like real listening and speaking questions in the assignment sections. I think that could help more for ielts practice. Otherwise this course has awesome content for ielts listening and speaking tips.

the tips are too general. I've heard the tips from YouTube for free lessons by an ex-examiner for IELTS more specifically than this course. But it's OK. at least I got a little insight about the IELTS test from this course.

Unfortuntly, this course has no practical part with examples academical writing and one lector. It's better to add some link with the test in order to practice.

it should have practical exercises

By Tohid A

If you are looking to get practice, the courses in this specialization will surely disappoint you; however, if you have no idea about IELTS test format, this course will introduce you to different modules of the test. The presenter of the course could've added more value to this course by contextualizing the "tips" she introduces throughout the courses. Tips with not context to practice them, will not be much benefit for the students.

The instructor just reads the slides and does not provide any practical exercises about any of the sections, type of questions or tips explained. This course only provides a very basic introduction to the exam. Nobody should pay to access this course.
