“Lots of great information, disseminated in simple, easy-to-understand concepts. The practical examples were great, and I loved noticing that actual content was incorporated as sentence examples throughout. This was just neat to see, and really drove home the practicality of the use of each concept (particularly in the grammar section)!”

“The instructor is very engaging. He presents the content in a fun way and allows timed breaks with application time.”
