What Students Are Saying

It's great learning and the course material is really very well planned. I like the feedback that Grace gives after every assignment and during the class. The class is very helpful for all nonnative speakers.

Ajay Mahajan, Software Engineer

The course really helped me to improve my writing skill, I think that personalized feedback helped a lot. The schedule of the class is so convenient because you can work and take the course at the same time!

Stefhanie Pacheco, Teacher

The class was really good and helpful, since I'm working on my pronunciation skills. The teacher worked on our mistakes while speaking, which was great.
