It´s an easy course for intermediate/advanced students of English as a second language. It helps organize and understand English grammar and structures and how to face writing an essay. I would recommend it for anyone who needs to write presentations in English. The forums can be improved. Many of the people in the forums was more interested in receiving correction to their English grammar than in giving feedback on other people´s writing style. It was also complicated to find one´s previous contribution in the forum. Hope it helps!
