This is the third course in the Learn English: Advanced Speaking and Listening specialization. In this class you will learn about different types of conversations you will have in academic settings. You will also learn some strategies for helping you understand other people's meaning and for helping you express yourself effectively. Learners will record several videos of themselves participating in assigned group discussions with their own friends and upload the videos for peer feedback. While this might seem intimidating, it will be a great opportunity for you to practice and improve your discussion skills. Please note that the free version of this class gives you access to all of the instructional videos and handouts. The peer feedback and quizzes are only available in the paid version....

Masterfully crafted. Great demonstrations of discussions and excellent analysis of the discussions. The tasks are a bit difficult to complete if you are on your own.

First, I want to say that the course information is great.

Second, it is supossed to be an online course, which it is, however thare are some activities that I do not consider so feasible, since they required the leraner to record videos (4 videos total, as the final projects at the end of each week) having academic discusions with other people, and from my point of view it is hard to do that, since the learner may be not able to socialize, that is why the learner rather to take an online course, plus other factors may have influenced like the circle social of the learner do not speak English, there is the option to record those videos with other classmates here in the platform, but it seems to be a hard option as well, since it is hard to connect with them. Those activities should be consistent with being able to record themselves without the help of others.

There is no way to record those videos on your own. Since it needs to be a social activity (academic dicsussions).

Another thing I want to mentions is that it takes so much time for other classmates to grade the work (peer grading) and as a consecuence of that, even if you are done with your work you need to wait until they grade your projects and you get an acceptable grade to pass to the other course, if you fail any of these projects it can be resubmitted again, however it will take more time for the other learns to grade it again and the payment of the subscription is due every month, which I do not think is fair to pay extra montnly subscription just because we are waiting on other to grade our work.

I have been trying to get a contact information, I have not been able to get it ye.
