I wanted a basic refresher but it was so much more. Things were explained in a manner that was easy to understand. The class cleared up confusion caused by other University courses that were suppose to cover the same material. Reference material listed was extremely helpful. Well worth the time, and I noticed a great improvement in my writing.

I wanted to finally get a grasp on all the parts of a sentence and how those parts are put together to form coherent writing. The instructors read off a script without giving sufficient examples. They also go through the material too quickly. After zipping through these scripts (which are basically the definitions of the different parts of a sentence), there is an ungraded quiz to assess what you've learned. Students need practice and a whole bunch of examples. Just because transitive and intransitive verbs are defined and each given an example does not mean that I can now magically tell a transitive from an intransitive verb in a sentence. I got through three weeks and gave up. The lack of examples and instructions and zipping through the material happened in each week's lesson but I was hoping it got better.

A very patient, in depth, and detailed survey of the English Language and Grammar. This course could easily be an Introductory course in Linguistics, as well as a second or third level Grammar Course. There is always a lively debate amongst the Grammar Police about which rules are absolute, and which are Zombie rules. Along with that, a majority of the class is ESL, and you just sit back in awe at their thirst for perfection in writing. They have the "ABC's " of correct style and grammar down pat: Accurate. Brief. Concise. It is a joy to see the enthusiasm with which they tackle this course. I am a Native English Speaker and this is my third time taking this course! It is tough, demanding, and thorough. And like most things worthwhile, it is worth the effort! Smiles, Kevin

Well, the course was recommended to me by my supervisor who is Chair of the Department at a South African University. The idea behind was to get me started on the new ways of teaching English Grammar and Writing in order to teach teachers. I am looking forward to learning as I prepare course materials for the teachers. I have yet to start the course.

I think that this course would help me to enhance my writing skill. Currently, I use English at school, but writing is the basic challenge I face in my every day writing. Therefore, I hope to improve my written English after completing this course.

This course was extremely useful for me. Now I know a lot of new things that I had never knew before. I was impressed by common problems with prepositions, comma splice, and another issues of punctuation, which were covered in this MOOC. Furthermore, writing assessments gave me the clue about how people understand my own writing. Our peers wrote a lot of cohesive blog posts about grammar and writing that were helpful. This is all Write101x (Perfectly!). I want to thank the course team for the knowledge, encouraging, and new grammar insight, which increase my career prospects. Sincere thanks! Best wishes for the Write101x team! You are amazing professionals!

Subjectively, I think it's going to be very intriguing and educative for people who do not have good command of the English Language. Every language has series of rules that govern it's correctness, and English Language is no exception to that. Knowing grammar exposes one to have a good command of the language. "Was salaam!"
