Hi, if you are an absolute beginner and want that somebody guides you through the path and initial steps then this is a very good guided course for you. In this few hours course, nobody can show you all the features in action. Obviously, you can explore further.

First of all, this is not an intermediate-level course. It's more of a beginner level. Secondly, the contents here are way too much outdated.

Para ser un curso gratuito y enseñar lo más básico de como crear una página en WordPress esta bien, solo que si deseas aprender más a fondo cómo funciona y cómo crear una pagina y personalizarla si tendría que buscar más formaciones. Pero para empezar y aprender esta super bien. me ha encantado.
