This is a very useful course even if you are very good in English . This course helps in understanding the type of sentences, proper usage of commas and perfect ways of writing attractive paragraphs.

What I learn most form this course is parallel structure and sentence variety lessons in Week 4.
It uses some conjunctions like and, but, both....and..., not only...but also...
Use the different 4 types English sentence style, simple, compound, complex and compound-complex to enrich your writing. In addition, adverbs, prepositional phrases (like in the morning), other transitions (furthermore) could be used to create variety. At last, combining the short sentences, medium sentences (10-15 words) and long ones (20-40 words) will also make your writing alive. Some other tips will also help like repeating key nouns, using synonyms, saying things in different ways.
- Use different sentence types
- Start sentence differently
- Use different sentence lengths
- Use synonyms effectively
Considering sentence variety will be the last step when you revise your essay, so do not do it in the begining.

It provides essential information neither about punctuation nor about grammar. I would say it is too superficial. Advanced learners will not gain new knowledge.

It was alright. Thought I would learn more than that, but I'm very thankful for learning about comma structure and so on.

I wish that the lessons could have gone a bit more in depth and have more abilities to give the students practice or interactions with instructors.

I had a good time learning new things which are generally not told in your academics.
Thanks to UCI for offering it. Best wishes.

The course is helpful but incomplete. It does not mention dashes and colons. It also misrepresents the usage of semicolons. I have seen the idea of using a semicolon followed by a transition word taught before, but I do not think I have ever seen it done in published writing in my entire life. It strikes me as being pretentious, something to be discouraged.

It was overall, alright. All of the group assignments killed it for me, though.

Poor visual communications, it should be better since it is the only way to follow the course.
Should be nice if the slides counted with a kind of animation to enphatize what we are talking about.
