The course is very informative. This is enough for someone who considers journalism as a profession. It's all about self learning. I'm so glad that I found this lesson.

Not really a course on English for journalists. There are some elements covering style and content but nothing really about language. There are also significant issues with the grading system. There are some quizzes, but a lot of the work is in non-assessed forms (e.g. make a video and post it online) where you are simply asked to confirm or not if you have completed those activities. This self scoring means that you can 'pass' the course without completing any of the work thus making the end certificate worthless. This is yet another course where I would be upset if I had paid in advance for the certificate as it does not provide any value.
