TOP REVIEWS FROM SPANISH VOCABULARY: CULTURAL EXPERIENCE
The course was very helpful, but I would like to have more explanations about the topics. These topics were quite difficult with the direct and indirect pronouns and the passive progressive tenses.´
I would very strongly recommend this course. It is a very well thought and planned module, it is fun and informative with some serious assignments that can be challenging but well worth it.
Challenging but good, definitely requires lots of practice and understanding. The discussion forum came in really handy in helping me understood certain things.
It's Very helpful to me.precise but effective. Exercise part is good but in the writing practice section there should give feedback like vocabulary section.
