by Claudia F. on April 22, 2024
I loved this course. Very well structured and I enjoyed the cultural information. I do think the quizzes should have fewer questions on famous people and soccer :) My grader Maria was very fast to grade and gave helpful and kind feedback.

Very easy to follow along and complete course.
by Danielle C. on April 21, 2024
There were a lot of inconsistencies in the material. In the units, negatives were missing and sentences weren't complete. I hope Sophia works on this as it really devalues the courses.
