Extremely informational, well presented, with questions that stimulate reflection. The optional reading material is food for thought. I hope to see more courses from the same professor and University.
I've taken a number of online courses on linguistics now, and this one was by and far the best. The material covered is indepth and engaging, and the professor's enthusiam makes the videos a delight.
The course was a nice introduction to linguistics, many topics were covered, but not in a very detailed way. I was expecting more examples from different languages.

Interesting way of presenting the basics of linguistics. Helps a lot to organise crucial informatinon in one's memory. Lessons, however, are too similar.

Good introduction course for linguistics, although some quiz questions are asked ambiguously and no choises looks right, and no one knows the answer.

A very nice introduction, covers a variety of topics that different branches of linguistics study, is not theory-heavy and is quite entertaining.

This is a decent introduction to the field of linguistics that is easy to understand and accessible to those without previous content knowledge.

It was an interesting course overall but I wish it was more detailed in some areas. However, it a comprehensive course of the basics.
A comprehensive introductory course to the study of linguistics. Would be even better if it covers more applied linguistics topics.

Very nice work on the various fields of Linguistics, high level interviews, but rather laborious and time consuming quizzes.

The only downside is that it was too short. Very informative and I've learned a lot that would prove useful in psychology.

I enjoyed the course and learned a lot. I wish there had been more interaction in the discussions, though.

Es un buen curso. Una lástima (y una sorpresa) que no tenga un video conclusivo luego del último módulo.

Material is excellent and very interesting. Test questions can be confusing and poorly phrased.

Very enjoyable however, I feel that Quiz Three needs to be looked over for software problems.
