    Great course

    I think this course it really helpful. It presents all the concepts clearly and straightforward (something many textbooks don't do). I like how the slides are presented, and the quizzes are very helpful to remember new information. Definitely recommend it to everyone.

  • Christi Elekes
    Great.

    This course taught me a lot of grammer that I did not learn from just memorizing words and phrases. I like having someone explain to me how the language is formed.

  • Alvintage
    Excellent

    I am taking spanish 1 in college and this course is helping me more than my professor. I use it to review the material covered and find it much easier and better explained than the book I use in class.
