Very good course, made me really think again. The professor is very clear on his explanations and he also made the course smooth and funny, which helped on the learning process. Highly recommended!
I found this course very challenging as I find critical thinking very difficult. However this course was extremely rewarding and I will be taking the other three modules in the Think Again series.

I found this course to be very interesting. I certainly gained a better understanding of arguments, my own shortcomings and steps I can take to improve/put into practice. Thank you.

I found this course full of useful information, now I am starting to analyse my daily talking with other persons in a complex way. It was a great start for the serie's think again
Great intro course. The skills taught can be useful for both academic pursuits as well as making our way through the bombardment of information we navigate in our daily lives.

I learned a lot about arguments and reasoning, and the Professor does a good job explaining things. The lectures, too, are (for the most part) not too long and not too short.

This course helps me improve knowledge about arguments a lot. I studied many interesting things with a friendly professor. But I found hard to apply it to practice.

The Instructor Is Fun,I Really Enjoyed The Entire Course Up Until The Awful FInal Quiz.I Have Not Encountered Another Final Test/Quiz Quite As Annoying As This One.

An excellent course, but it is hard going (took me 3 attempts to get through the final quiz!). Recommend for anyone interested in how people present arguments.
By Guillermo P•
Very well explained every aspect of an argument with examples explained in great detail. Clearly lot of work has put into this and I thank everyone for it.

Interesting view on how to construct and deconstruct arguments. Not enough focus on more complex issues though. The examples, in general, were too simple.
By Gregory R•
Professor was fun and entertaining. This course provided information on how to break down an argument and actually get more out of what you are reading.

It was interesting working through this course and though I had to repeat my assignments I understood that I need to enhance my skills in argumentation.

Weekly quizzes instead of just the final (that actually counts for a grade) would be very helpful to me, but it was a great course and I learned a lot!

Really enjoyed the course, although some of the videos did give me grief because of the length. Loved learning all the content throughout though.

Algunas veces, los subtítulos, tanto en español como en inglés, tienen desfase conforme corre el video. Fuera de eso, es un excelente curso >o<

Good lesson on thought combined with linguistics and language use. Appreciate that additional materials are provided for higher level learning.

The course is unusual but great, as a student at University, having a course about thinking it helps to check what I'm saying before to do it.
By Win K K•
I do enjoy it but this course is mainly focused on theory. Sometimes, it is hard to understand and I still think it should be more practical.

I do enjoy the course through interaction with other participants and like to express my sincere gratitude to Coursera and Duke University.
By Darryl C•
No complaints. This course revealed im more interested in the interpersonal dynamic of influence and persuasion vs the logic of arguments.
By Fabio A C S•
This is a wonderful basis to understand how can the arguments are made and what are the most basic element to take into account !!
By Delamon R•
great course! but would have been fun if every example throughout had been from a real historical argument (no made up examples).
By Jacquelyn C M•
Much more difficult than I anticipated. Confusing. But I did learn a lot and took tons of notes, so I will review. Thank you.
The course is related with language and logical analysis , so it's a little hard to learn because my English is very poor.
By Fabio D B•
It's very well-thought. The examples are clear and the explanations are simple.
It lacks more practice exercises, though.
By Karen M•
An exciting course. This one focusses on the importance and impact of interpretation and language in a conversation.
