Hi! I´m so glad to start this course. I am Diego, from Ecuador. I´m an artist and art teacher since more than twenty years. During my career I have made a lot of things: paintings, drawings and some sculptures using different media. My subjects are nudes, portraits and also compositions with pre-columbian images. I have shown my works in some places in my country, South-America and Europe. I´m also interested in art theory, philosophy and language. I have interest in languages phenomenal, so this derives to interest to learn languages from another cultures. Until now I read and speak in English in a reasonable level, and French in a low level. I like English for many reasons: films, music and literature of 20th century make me feel connected with English language. I have practiced English since many years and I have coursed some classes.

That's a great course, especially the writing and speaking part. The real raters evaluated some answers from students. Their comments and explanations helped me know how to get a high score. I hope they can provide more evaluations in the next run.

Courses are pretty good if you get for free. I paid for certification but I couldn't follow courses because of some reasons before the time tests' due and when I have time to take courses, I realized that they closed the courses even before enrolledment for verified certificate closed. So I couldn't finish the tests and I couldn't get enough score for certification. Even if I'm satisfied with courses, my experience wasn't that good.

Content is poor. The amount of practice questions is very little, and most of them are the same that you can get as "free content" in the ETS website, therefore, they are not providing you with anything new. In the discussion threads, the instructors mostly used "copy-paste" bits of text to answer to our questions - sometimes up to the point that the answer received wasn't related to the question asked. I received the impression that the main goal of the course was to convince me about how marvellous the extra materials (which are not free) that they offer and the TOFEL test in general are. Some pieces of advice were useful though, and the speaking and writing reviews were interesting as well.
