Highly recommended. This course is a fast track and full of knowledge for aspiring journalist.

Muy completo e interesante!!, very complete and interesting!!

Me gustó mucho el curso, aprendí como se deben manejar las fuentes y la información. Es un curso bastante entretenido y las herramientas que utilizan los profesoras son apropiadas para entender cómo se debe desempeñar un periodista o alguien que quiera ejercer este oficio. Lo recomiendo mucho.
