Agree with the previous comment. I would suggest if the video playing speed can be adjustable. The speaking pace is too slow (especially read by a computer, but the translation is very accurate though), otherwise, it seems a great course. I am taking it.

The course content is really interesting but its translated from Chinese. You can tell the translation is done by a computer because it doesn't come out very accurate. This is a real shame because the material is great. If they fix the translation this will actually be worthwhile. As it is now its barely understandable and not worth your time.
