    Very clear

    The course is well developed; I got to learn skills (especially for listening) that helped me score an overall of 7. I also enjoyed the instructions of the teacher, very clear and insightful. There is a list of people who are also enrolled in this course who you can practice speaking with as well as a Facebook group.
