I found this course to be very intersting and quite comprehensive. I liked the demonstration of various traditional exercises. I think the course designers should have hired native English speakers to voice over the Chinese teachers as some of them are hard to understand. The quizzes did not seem to be entirely related to the video lessons. Some questions popped out of the blue, like: what is the international yoga day. Or is weight lifting aerobics. I don't think it is, but it seems the teachers disagree. I don't think the breathing exercise was demonstrated clearly.... But the course has demonstrated the importance of physical exercise and meditation in building up the immunity.

I only gave 2 stars as both structure and content are average, and the level of English is really poor. On top of that, the questions in the quizzes are often unrelated or based on unknown content (not mentioned during the course). This been said, I did learn something and enjoyed the course
