I've benefited a lot by pursuing this course. Small pronunciation and word stress has been cleared. I would suggest non-English speakers to take up this course to enhance their English language skill.

I found that this course was very well structured and also going straight to the point that are important to have a good spoken English for the USA. The exercises offered are really good, but as there is no integrated platform to record voice, it is very difficult to rate or be rated properly because many of us have bad microphones, and/or bad headphones. for example, I recorded my prompts using a professional headphone for skype that we use at the office, could hear them perfectly, but some people complained about poor quality and low level ... I also had trouble with some people not understanding clearly instruction and expecting the exact words given as example being used in the answer, this is also something to better clarify I think in the explanations!
To wrap up, it was a very good experience, I intend to follow the other courses in the future, because in the overall it has refreshed my english very well and recalled me about the essentials, thank you!

It's been stupendous experience and I learned much more about the fundemental and segmental features of developing my english speaking skills then I could ever assumed. Not only have I learned, but also put them into practice for comprehension and as for meaningful illustration and practice. I am satisfied with many aspects of this course, and ı really do believe it has contributed in my development as a further teacher. However, I was not really favor of repetitious peer review assignments. Even though the idea was good the implementation had some flaws for me such as being repetitive and tedious. Adding some more variety into this assesment or substracting the number of such assignments may make this course much more enthrilling and junctive. Overall, thank's for this great course. I have taken many notes and I'll ensure to share them with my students for whole communicational development in collaboration with principles of my educational instutute

This course can help you to speak English in a formal way. It teaches you briefly the main things you have to know and to master in order to deal with conversations whether in person or on the phone. Besides, it gives you the keys to pronounce rightly words and sentences using intonation, stress words and letters, English rhythm, etc.
The assignments at the last of the week were constructive and helpful.
I really advice you to take that course especially if you don't want to spend time in searching a relevant course that will give you the main things and expressions to use.
If you want to learn how to write professionally, I don't recommend this course to you.
I thank all the creators and the instructors of this course. It was a good experience.

This was a very useful subject, with good examples and experiences, weekly exercises that assisted me to reflect on the teachings and the further readings to take my understanding to the next level. I really enjoyed this course. It is a area that bleeds into other fields of study and can be applied in many different settings. I enjoyed the varying uses of visuals, videos, and discussions .This course has given me the whole new perspective and purpose to my life. I would recommend to everyone to do this course not only for your betterment but for the betterment for our entire society.

In my opinion this course does not teach you to 'speak English professionally', but it teaches you to 'learn how to speak English'. I was looking for a course that would teach me how to write professional emails and have professional phone conversations, like which words I should use, what common sentences are or how to build up professional sentences. I am a bit disappointed and think this course was a waste of time for me. This is really meant for people that are learning to speak English and don't know how to pronounce words or how to respond to people in a really easy way.

it's a good course, helps a lot to understand things about pronunciation and helps you to feel more comfortable when speaking in english. The only problem that i find whit this course isn't about the course, it's about the peer to peer grading, is hard to be objective with a big variety of accents and pretty hard to grade sometimes, not in all cases.Also is a short course, the assignments are very simple and that makes it an easy going course, i would recommend it for intermmediate english stundents.

Me gustó mucho lo que pude aprender. Reglas muy sencillas y generales para pronunciación y entonación que no conocía y no se enseñan en la educación básica. También prepara para situaciones más allá del lenguaje.
Solo me gustaría que haya algo mas de seguimiento, algún contacto en realidad con los profesores o ayudantes, en lugar de ser solo entre compañeros. El foro se vuelve desordenado. También deben actualizar algunos los links de las lecturas que ya no existen.

I have not yet to finish all the modules of this course, though. I can find it quite valuable for all persons seeking to improve thier English, not least for non-native speakers. On top of it, what sets this class apart from the others is instructor's attitude. To put it more detailed, it is easily noticed that they incessantly endeavor to impart prime information as clearly as possible. Really appreciate Georgia Tech for offering such like this source on the house

Nice it has very good information, it does not take a lot of time to complete but it has good information about how to improve someones English.
The only drawback is that the peer assessments are being performed by users like me who I am not certain whether they can correct the way that someone talks. I found very hard to grade someone on word stress or sentence stress as I was not 100% what is the right. I gave full grade as long as I could understand them.

Joining this course develops effectively my speaking skills although it is a short week. During the course, I have to put in effort to speak the word and the sentence correctly. However, this course is worth attending. I have new experience to have meet with my peers from different places. I am happy to attend your course and participating in this course. I am really grateful to your well-prepared video lectures and well-organized assignment.

I really enjoyed this course. The instructors were excellent and easy to understand. The videos were beneficial, and I learned a lot from them. However, I think what will make this course perfect is the addition of face-to-face interaction in one of the graded assignments to get the best learning experience out of this course. Finally, I recommend this course to others who are looking to improve their spoken English in an easy and fast way!

The course was very effective. It helped me to feel more confident in speaking. Especially, when I heard my voice and pronunciation by recording assignments, I could find my mistakes and fix them as I was learning the right one. On the other hand, the word stress module was complex. But I assume that it is a subject that should be studied by itself.
I'd like to thank you to the teachers who gave us this opportunity and effort to teach.

It's really amazing, I love it a lot because it gave me how to deal with people around you in your work. But I think you should increase exercises to because there are a few videos each week. Please increase the videos in this course to develop ourselves by practicing through the course as well as assignments, On top of that, you should make a video conference between students and instructors to practice what we've learned.

As an advanced English speaker, for me this course goes too little into improvement of pronounciation.
The tips for conversations - small talk, phone, online etc. - are only very basic as well.
Good course for beginners though and I also liked the interspersal of little questions and tasks along the way (although also too simple imo).
Very good - but obviously only paid content - are the teamwork assignments.
