I definitely recommend this course! It has lots of great lessons about the TOEFL iBT ® test and the skills you need to do well on it. The course explain very well each section of the TOEFL exam: Reading, Speaking, Listening and Writing section. On the Reading section the course share some strategies for how to approach academic texts and to focus the main ideas.They also talked about reading or skimming a passage and then taking a look at the questions. Next, inside the Listening section of the test where they discussed focusing on how the ideas presented connect with one another. This particular section is really good and the exercises as well!At the Speaking section you can share your answers online and may be it can be scored by their real raters.

In sum, this course overcame my expectations and I`m much more confident to take my test!

Hello How are yo u Mi nombre es carolina tengo 20 años de edad y vivo en ecuador quiero poder hablar, entender y escribir en inglés. Tengo bases pero quisiera ser un discípulo que absorbe todo como esponja y obtener sabiduría. Entre mis planes están en estudiar en el extranjero pero en el extranjero no te van a enseñar tus materias en español (castellano) sino en inglés busca nuevos cursos pero en realidad aquí donde vivo no hay para adultos sólo para niños( The colors, numbers, animals) why? Que mejor estudiar y aprender en su país natal.desearía con toda el alma recibir una beca. Mi limitado efectivo no puede pagarme nada. De todo corazón desearía ser parte del grupo en el programa.

In my view, it is a great opportunity to learn a foreign language online so as to share one's knowledge the other learners. This course will be so useful those who have no experience and skills studying language I think.

Basically a good way to start learning about being a scientist, robotist, astronaut or whatever you want to be. What I don't understand about this platform is why do they close the courses so that you cant get certificates. Even at a real school you can always pursue a module even I others have finished it. And even if this platform enables you to audit the course after others have finished, you do not get the support you need for you to successfully benefit from the course. I was doing a course, last week, on Autonomous quadrotors and the course finished in 2015. I couldn't find the quadrotor simulator where I was supposed to input the code to see how the quadrotor would fly in real life. To male matters worse, there was no instructions or tutorials on how I can code using Python. These edX people seriously want me to learn Pythonon my own!!! What am I even doing here if i can learn it elsewhere??? Are these Module codes the same as...

I recommend every future TOEFL test takers this course, having valuable and worthy content in addition to raters' review of some submitted speaking and writing of the participants of the course. Wish they reviewed more of the submitted stuff, however. It also has forums for more interactions between participants and also instructors. I appreciate all instructors, content providers and others who made this course available.
